Chris, I am so pleased at your recovery, it is good to see someone coming back again without recurrence. It is not often I have had injury free years, only remember about one or two at most.I just hope it continues for you. I know Hallatrow, its not far from Bristol, if you do need one I certainly cannot recommend him highly enough, he convinced me of my torn meniscus!!!!

I know what you mean Ffran, I have always listened to my body but I always take docs advice into consideration. I didn't go into details with doc but she did say my running had caused the problem, I do know people may be able to tell me how it could have happened. It may be because some soft tissue had not yet healed. She also said that she doubted that I had aggravated the work done by the surgeon which is reassuring. We must remember that doctors are 'general' practitioners and not really specific in any branch of medicine. I think that makes them a little nervous to put their necks on the line. So they are always very non-commital, specially when it comes to running injuries.

I'm relieved, Seejay. Sounds like you've had good advice and feel confident about your treatment... I know you'll get better soon. London will be well within your sights I'm sure.x

well back from my first weigh in at weight watcher and i lost 6 pounds last week putting me down to 13st 1lb did a 3 mile run again today took just over 27 minutes which i am pleased about as it's the fastest one yet since i got back into training for Boscombe properly

Hi all. Just a quick hello from me and a note to say hope all ok with you guys?

Hi everyone. I didn't manage to get out over the weekend, but did get my better half out last night for just over 4 miles. I ran ahead and then doubled-back to keep her in sight. Not sure what I ran as my Garmin played up, but I guess it was around 4.75 - 5 miles. My wife's hip started playing up again, but she is determined to run her first 10k in 3 weeks time. Touch wood, all was ok with me!

SeeJay, if you wouldn't mind letting me have the details of the sports therapist you use. Just in case.

Looking to run again tomorrow night. Hope everyone is well, whether you are running, or not!

Hi CB, his name is David Adler 01179 565855.  He's been treating me on and off for years and I wont go anywhere else.  Glad your on the road mate, is the hip a problem during or after running, I used to have awful problems during and after and sorted it out by doing pilates.

An update on the cough, after a reading an update on here I have found a breathing technique that gets me over cough whilst running, so fortunately have got running again.  Lost a bit of speed I had pre marathon but at least I feel more confident of running Benidorm Half which is just over two weeks away.

Whew, was going for a run this evening but too exhausted now after reading Nessie's post... Need an early night now.
Hi Kev, how's your training going?
LBB I'm relieved you've found the solution to that cough- hope Benidorm goes well.
CB- a trustworthy therapist is worth the world- hope you find yours.
Toby- how's your OH getting on with her running?
We're all off for a family celebratory meal tonight - my baby's 22nd birthday. I've been missing him as he's living in Cardiff at the moment whilst training for his job with the Police, which he is loving!
Running is getting back to normal despite soft tissue aches, after 2 short ones earlier in the week and 6 miles this morning. Plan to do a Parkrun tomorrow, and a weekly schedule of races through November and December- I'm going to venture into the Cross-country league.
