I try and run 3 times a week at 6 miles each time. 8:30 mile average usually.

2 years ago ran a marathon and trained 8 months for it. It was crazy doing 16-20 miles at a time. I've calmed down a bit since then but would like to do another marathon.

Is it fun, or just a sheer grind? My gym does spinning classes and, to be frank, judging from the demographic of the class it's tempting to give it a go

Can't run at all now as my back is f***ed
Same here, used to do 5k around 26 minutes and 10k around 57.

I get days where I think my back feels fine, try to run and have to give up after 20 or 30 seconds because the pain is unbearable

**** that....

My old man had back problems (from being a paramedic) I always fear them through quite strenuous work....we get free massages and chiropractic through work.
Started going...

I used to have lower back problems at the very point where spine meets arse. It was a muscle idcwasted by STOPPING training....
