Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport: a warning for club runners

Early in December 2018, I developed a running injury - a sharp pain in my pelvis.  It came out of the blue with no warning. The only thing I could put it down to was that I’d overdone it in the previous few weeks and had also been under a lot of stress at the time. I did a couple of races (a PECO and the final Even Splits 5k) in the week before which I knew I shouldn’t have done so initially I blamed myself for simply overdoing it. What has unravelled is actually more significant.
