The DNS Weekend

A few months ago I signed up for two running events.  At the time training had gone well until the events of May 9th.  I had to miss both events due to my back.  In running ‘DNS’ means ‘Did Not Start’.  While I feel better enough to begin simple housework, I don’t feel better enough to even risk a 10 K walk.  When I walked 5 K two weeks ago, during a day things felt a little better, I paid for it the next day.  I even asked the physiotherapists if I can walk the 10 K event.  He said it wouldn’t damage anything only aggravate it.

I didn’t want to take that chance.

On one hand I picked up my race kit and have this new t-shirt.  On the other I had to take a look at my goals and readjust.  I did sign up for the 10, 10, and 5 in September.  If I want to at least run it and cross the finish line, time has gone out the window for the time being.


One thought on “The DNS Weekend

  1. Such a shame you’re back hasn’t been very cooperative. I know how debilitating back pain can be. I watched Mom suffer with it almost all my life and my own back flares up on a regular basis. Take care, my friend.
