Also had my taper 10 mile run sunday - never felt worse in my life - dreading my "gentle" 5 miler tonight, i think i have been eating lead the way the legs feel! Also my first Marathon - so pleased others are experiencing this and posting it, its given me hope!! Hope you all have a good one!
Back in June last year, i experienced a reacurrance of SI joint problems which first gave me grief playing rugby 10 years ago. I immediately went to see a local chiropractor who confirmed my worries after the usual tests and manipulated the SI joint back for me. I still am going every 6 -8 weeks at the moment.
As with Weiner Dog, I can thoroughly recommend stretching and strengthening of the area (a decent chiropractor will provide you with these) it is now 7 months since the injury, i still feel slight discomfort when running and have to really warm up and down correctly to protect the area, especially in the groin and glutes as this is the area that causes havoc with the nerve damage. It took me 3 months before i could even hit the road again and manage a mile... but it will get easier given time and patience, just dont try to do to much to quick.
