Hi, I've got an ache in the outside of my right hip when I walk or run. It's not too bad at the moment, but I think it's trochanteric bursitis, so I really don't want it to get any worse, especially as I am training for the York marathon in October. I've read various things, but maybe I am just being thick because I cannot make head nor tail of the exercises, and when I try to do them, I don't feel like I'm stretching the right bits. Can anyone suggest useful stretches, or where I might find photos or videos of people doing the stretches so I can see what they are on about? Also, how long will it take to go away, and do I have to stop running 'till it does? All the experiences I can find seem to be from people who have it from being older or obese, so I'd appreciate hearing about how other runners have got on with it. Thanks.
Currently running 20-30 miles a week, would be delighted with a sub 4 but mostly just want to finish. Do NOT like speedwork, I don't have any big hills locally for hill training, but I do like lots of miles.
7 runs a week for 16 weeks is 112 calendar entries, I have no reason to prefer one plan over another, so if there are google calendar friendly plans out there then I would like to know about them please! Anything that will export into ical format should work fine.
Hello all, long time no see, So I'm aiming for the York marathon in October, having not been running long distances much for the last few years. I'd like a more structured training schedule than I used to use, so I was thinking of using a training plan. Please can anyone suggest a sub-4 marathon training plan which will export straight to Google Calendar, so it's easy for me to schedule in runs? In case anyone was wondering, I'm still living in York, still a Quaker & rabid leftie, Only about 80% vegan these days, and about to start a new job in the epidemiology of antibiotic resistance (using maths to fight 'superbugs' like MRSA), having just finished a Masters in Public Health. Thanks, Duck.
My Mum was bitten by two dogs a few months ago while out running, so now she is very scared of dogs running up to her, because she doesn't know if they will bite or not. She is 67 years old, less than 5 foot tall, with osteoporosis (brittle bones). If a middling-sized dog jumps up at her, even 'being friendly', she could easily be knocked to the ground and break bones.
The Dangerous Dogs act https://www.gov.uk/control-dog-public says that 'Your dog is considered dangerously out of control if it... makes someone worried that it might injure them', which could be 'just' knocking over rather than biting.
