Slumpt test I looked up and I thought what have I got to do with the setting time of concrete lol But found what you meant. This is what the Doc got me to do and thats what made him decided it was a back problem. When I done it the numbness appeared. Yeah I mean I can still run but my speed drops way down for a few miles until I shake it off and I pick up again after. I would just love to be able to run injury free because I know I can give a lot more than I am its so frustrating. Somebody mentioned the CHI running book I will have to have a look. But I'm off out for a 6 miler tomorrow I know I will have the problem but Ill grin and bare it for now
Oooo thanks Greg.
Forgive my apparent stupidity, but strap them together how?
Do you mean tie them together in an old sock or something?
Lol I think so.
Thanks a lot Greg, will get my bum down to Sports Direct to pick up some balls
I've stopped running because after a long run thinking I can just run through it, my foot is now permanently numb Been a week and still not heard from physio. So to be fair not much has happened. Reading up on it too I'm not going to be running for a while. So instead for the next few months I've taken up long distance walking events to feed my competitiveness as walking is not a problem!
So yeah not great news and admittedley I was thinking my back was the least of my problems. I tried all sorts and spent a lot of money trying different things, lo and behold it was my back
If you got the same problem lie on your back and get somebody to lift you leg 90 degrees and see if you get tingling in your foot. Thats all the doc done to me to decided what was up
Got first physio appointment this friday. Seeing as my race was the day after it might be leaving it a bit late lol. However i've got back into walking and other things at moment. Got caving this weekend then a 23 mile walk next weekend then coasteering. This should take my mind off of things. Strange that I cab have an apparent back problem but I'm quite well enough to do all these other activities However I would like to get back running even if it's just to keep fit and not compete. Nothing quite beats waking up for a run before work
A few weeks down the line and the exercises seem to have worked. Just spent a week in sunny swanage and ran loads! Most i done was an 11 miler along the coast path. I also done a 5 miler on the roads too. This before would have been a no go. So it seems the exercises have fixed me for the time being. However I'm trying to do my trail running as its a lot easy on the old body. Plus I bought a road bike to use for cross training. I have entered the black death run on may 13th and would hope to do this just to finish as that would be a massive mental barrier out the way
Any updates vicar?
