I've been diagnosed with this at the hospital 4 days ago and I'm in constant pain/ ache with this and have been told I can only swim for atleast 4 weeks. I have just returned from 3 months of back injury which stopped me from running only to now have this. VERY FRUSTRATED becasue I love running and the back injury has already had a dramatic affect on my running ability.
I love exercise and training please can anyone give me anymore advice I feel like giving up!
I have been advised by medics not to take part in this event now (gutted but if I take part I could do some serious damage to my back). So my number is up for grabs all i ask is to be paid for number and the tech shirt I ordered size medium £22.
Although I am injured runner I am still running this event for Rett UK. So If anyone see's me struggling please spur me on. I don't normally do charity events but I cannot let people down or my Club. I haven't run for 2 weeks and I'm slowly getting better have a great physio man who is gettng me ready. I think I will be the one who is last but I'm not looking for a PB for this event I just want to complete even if I have to walk/run. It's the taking part that counts!
Well I've just done the Humber Bridge Half Marathon last weekend (27.06.10) on the hottest day of the year 33 degree heat this is my first one so far (2hrs 26mins) so I'm won't be out to run now having a break. Just going to take it easy and run with my club for the rest of Summer until Sept when I have another half marathon.
Just to left you know I completed the course 2 hours 26 mins, which I think is fab considering the heat it was 33 degrees. I walked up heartbreak hill though but I don't care.
The support was FANTASTIC and the hospitality of all the people who live in the area I gather alot of them are not on water meters! HOSEPIPE galore and I took advantage of everyone of them.
Water stations they just couldn't keep up but they did a tremendous job keeping us stocked up with fluids. Did see a couple of gents collapsed on floor wiht fluid drips and I hope they are OK and no one actually died.
Did see a load of people bail out and start walking the other way but I thank my club (Tickhill) for the training of cross country running in the heat these last few weeks.
