Just like to know if anybody else suffers from abscess on back after running long distance . The abscess has been Diagnosis as Staph aureus Folliculitis which is a bacteria that lives on the skin which enters your hair follicles after a break in your skin.. Been running for about 5 years started doing 10ks then half marathons then trail running and so so leading up to ultras which been doing for about 3 years from 50ks to 69miles am a fit person but after running the wall run this year couple of weeks after got hit down with this abscess very pain full but it seems my body can't fight this so got to go on antibiotics then after it clears up a few weeks later after I ran my next ultra they reappear and so on.having test now waiting for blood test next week.hope to be fit for my 100miler next week. Any body else suffers this thanks
Hi roger..when I said hammering past me I meant fast .sometimes the slower runners should let you past if u cant passed safely. I had 2 runners about 37miles up in the woods would not let me pass & I said can I come through please but they ignored me .but hey ho
Good running Roger did see you hammer pass me..
Dont think I be doing it again think 3 times is plenty then again I said that last year.hope everone has recovered hope to get out saturday to get the cw100 training started.will be doing the chiltern challenge ultra in july 50k then my last run before the cotswolds way 100 is the night greenman ultra 46miles around bristol.may fit in a few trail marathons.
