For the record too - my daily headaches and ear infection is still present but I have not once mentioned it since running again- no need to after the exploits etc on here.. Treatment every 3 months for me at the moment and possible operation later in the year (optional and has been advised)
Can't even wish Samir well as he quite clearly doesn't listen to anyone.
I think I mentioned it once but I got away with it....
Just been for an ultra sound scan to identify my mystery lump.
Good news and bad news.
Good news - it's nothing to worry about from a general health perspective.
Bad news - its caused by running and I need to stop running completely for two weeks for it to go away and get better or it might get worse.
So the on, off Wilmslow HM is finally definitively OFF.
I'm about to google to try and recall the proper technical terms but he talked about my periostal a lot which is the skin around your bone and it being thickened due to possibly a minor strain of one of my muscles. EDIT: Periosteal edema which is Stage 1 of 4 stages - stage 4 being a stress fracture.
If it doesn't go away in two weeks of no running then he would want to do a full MRI to check if the bone marrow was damaged which he said would be a pre stress fracture.
So back to triathlon training which he encouraged.
EDIT: So after all these weeks of keeping my Jantastic score going it's now totally stuffed.
good news bad news eh.
You're definitely keeping us all educated with new injuries.
Enjoy the rest period, and you'll come back bigger and better in the future.
