I picked up a niggle at the top of my left leg. Google has diagnosed it as my hip flexor. Every time I try to run I have a sharp pain at this point which then seems to travel down my leg.
I've given it a fair amount of rest, plus stretching, roller etc but it doesn't seem to ease off. So it's about time I called a phyisio so they can have a guess at the problem.
I have put in quite a few miles (for me) on the bike during Feb, about 500, as this causes me no trouble whatsoever. Hopefully this is keeping my endurance ticking over but with no cycling races planned it all feels a bit aimless.
Although I did have a go at a 10 mile time trial with the local road club a couple of weeks ago, jeeez that was tough!
Unfortunately most of the meets clash with my son's footy.
KR no plans yet for an Autumn marathon but I'm thinking about giving a triathlon a go, as I would hope the multi sport training would lessen my ever increasing injury count. But I always say this when on the bench.
Christ, I sound a miserable fecker! It's only running.
Apologies Badbark I thought I had removed myself from Jantastic. All done now.
Hi all, not a good year for me as I picked up an injury at the end of January and have struggled ever since. I've been out on my bike a fair bit as I desperately try to keep the fitness up but my enthusiasm has dropped due to no racing focus.
So no London again this year, and no Reading or Wokingham halfs either. Bugger!
Sorry to put a downer on this positive thread and I hope all your training is going well.
I'll hopefully be back when I find my running legs.
Hi all, just popping in to wish you all a happy New year.
I've not posted for a while but do still lurk as it's a pain posting from my phone, should buy myself a pc but don't really need it apart from here.
I've joined Jantastic to keep the motivation up for vlm through these winter months. Of course there was only one team to join.
My stats for 2014 are 2653 miles with an average of 8mm pace, that's all you need really apart from testing yourself once or twice a week.
4 races, 2 pb's and one vets win.
New year's resolution is to post more on here with all you nice people.
