Just over two weeks ago, following a MT 10k I got a dull ache behind my knee the next day, put it down as just another niggle and have carried on training since - 35 mile a week including a track session. I've also done a park run on it since, and did another MT 10 K last Thursday. After a steady 10 yesterday it's got a tad more ache about it (3/10). Despite feeling it mildly during the first half mile or so of a run it very quickly disappears and I can train fully without feeling it. It just comes on afterwards and I can feel it walking upstairs or if I hop on the leg, it's not painful just a heavy ache. My concern is it just won't go, I'm worried that if I continue to train on it it will just get worse, but being a runner don't want to stop while my body is still allowing me to run! I have booked to see a physio on Friday but wondered if anybody else had had a similar experience and what the outcome was?
Our best runner is a 33min 10k man and placed 75th, Notts finished 15 runners in front of him. Incredible depth.
Yea I had an injection in the tendon at the top of the hamstring. After over 2 months of cross training with light running I was back to full training within 4 weeks of having the injection. You should feel a difference after a week, then it can take up to 6 weeks to get the full effect. Hope it fixed you.
Be interested to see how you go in March, assuming we both keep knocking out 40 mole weeks we should also be running a similar half time.
I passed you around 2 miles. And finished 271st in 50:30 to your 292nd 51:27. Always helps when my ticker behaves!! I've had some good training of late 40+ miles a week and I'm starting to get some strength with it, still a way to go yet though. Hoping to get in shape for a sub 1:30 in the Stafford Half in March.
Yes I got lapped by the first 7, in the muddy bit which hey just slipped across the top of!
