Same as mathschick, my physio also stated the root cause is weakness in the glutes and therefore, not using the glutes muscles to the full extend while running. I foam roll ITB both legs severals times a week and trying to increase flexibility and strengthen the glutes.
Hiya Gary , I ran 3 marathons in 3 consecutive Sundays this year, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Rutland Water, and also 2 marathons in 1 week.
I found the most important part of the recovery plan was to have post race massage immediately after crossing the finishing line, it made a huge difference. Then all the other recovery these: massage, physio, foam roller, cold bath, compression tights, yoga, pilates or Tai Chi.
I didn't run in between marathons, except for warmup run before the race.
I'm over Rutland now after going to Thailand 3 days afterwards, feel sorry for Miserable bleeder who is still suffering. I've ordered personalised "14 marathons in 2012" medal hanger, however, 2 medals will be missing Steyning and Rutland, does anyone else who has done these races want to order/design a medal? The Rutland Water t-shirt doesn't even say you have completed 2012 marathon.
I'm 13 down, Portsmouth to go.
Just over a week ago I calculated I needed to run 6.6 miles everyday for next 36 days (until the end of the year) to reach another challenge goal of 2,012 kilometres (1,250 miles) in 2012. After a mammoth running schedule this week of 57.8 miles (the most I have ever run in a week in my life). I now have to run just shy of 6 miles a day for the next 29 days.
How many Miles/Kilometres has everyone else ran this year in training and races?
