  1. I know a lot of people who’ve had this issue. While taking a break from something they loved was as painful as the sciatica, they did ultimately get back to running. They had to change up their approach to running too- slower paces, more trails, less roads, and more frequent cross-training, including really focusing on back and glute strength. Good luck! I know it’s tough to stop for a while but you can get back to it!

  2. Thanks for your comment. It’s also been hard to come to terms with knowing my running life will change (you mean I can’t just go run that half marathon I forgot to train for?), but I know that running slower and on trails more often is better than no running at all. I am trying to stay positive even when these thoughts creep into my head. I do know people who have been sidelined even for a whole year or more with an injury but eventually made their way back, so as frustrating as it may be, I’m still somewhat hopeful I will be back some day.
