I have had what I fought was Piriformis for what seems eternity now and getting very frustrated as it doesn't want to go but went to a physio and she says although there's pain coming from the piriformis its my spine especially the left hand side of it that's coursing it via nerve endings also it feels like sciatica running from the piriformis down to the heel but I feel nothing from my back whats so ever, I have been doing the usual exercises to help things along but it not getting any better in-fact its got worse I find it hard to get out of the bed in the morning also I have a running machine but only manage 20mins after that my leg feels like dropping off.
Just brilliant I finished this race slightly over the time that I was aiming for by 10 mins but put it down to the heat it was just to bloody hot. Lovely course taken in the best of the Pembrokeshire country side thats on offer I carried plenty of fluid around me and there was plenty on route aswell infact every 3 miles also the residents that lived on the route kindly got there garden sprinklers out which was very refreshing and appreciated by all. Will be back next year hoping to beat my time but hoping that it wont be as hot. A big thank you to all the organizers of the weekends events it was just brilliant. Well done.
Looking forward to this race it being my second Marathon since London 1999 knowing it to be far more hillier than Worcester Marathon in March but I am building it up for the Snowdonia in October, I am hoping to do the Welsh Marathon around the 4 hour mark.
Hi Nifty, I ran the half at Worcestrer last year and found the course to be fairly flat bar one or two bumps and in places quite fast so deceded to enter the full this year its the first full marathon for me since the London in 1999 I am planning another the Welsh in Tenby in July then the biggy in October the Snowdonia Marathon. Good luck with your run its a briiliant course and your do well.
