Hi ken, am still not getting better. did a mile race flat out 6min 10sec. could barely walk for a week afterwards. Even slow runs are now hurting. Used to regard a half marathon race as an easy gallop but now even thinking of that distance hurts. i might take a few months off running entirely, then build up slowly to see if that will help. Go easy on the knee and stick to grass and trails for the long runs. Good luck with Rome. I would do almost anything to be fit again
hi ken, congrats on the Brussels run. Am still crocked and only doing around 15 miles per week. Am afraid to enter a race and run fast as I feel so bad after. Still i will soldier on and hope for better times. last road race of the year is a 10k in 3 weeks time and i might enter. Keep up the training and glad to hear about your knee
Hi Ken, still slogging away but not much better. I would give anything to be as fit as I was at Barcelona. Am doing 15-16 miles per week and loads of stretching. Am afraid to race as a flat out run wrecks me for days. The thought of a marathon fills me with despair as I cant get much further than 10k without pain. Good luck with Brussels and dont injure yourself. How did you do at the DENNY 10k
Hi kg, am still suffering. am only doing around 15 miles per week. If i go above 5 miles my hips ache so am only doing 3x5mile runs in an attempt to build up slowly with lots of rest and stretching. Did a 10k two weeks ago ---- 50m18secs --- was on target for 45 mins but blew up in the last km, probably due to no long training runs. I won't give up yet. how is your knee. Hope it's getting better.
Has any injured runner ever been successfully cured by any of the following: physio, chiropractor, podiatrist, osteopath,acupuncturist or sports massage therapist? In my opinion they are all a bunch of quacks. I finished the barcelona marathon in Mar last year and was feeling great. I played a game of 5-a-side football in April, got up next day with severe pain in both hips, which is still here despite spending almost £2000 on the above professionals. After 9 mnths waiting I was referred to an NHS sports injury clinic for physio -- result --- totally useless. The worst part of all this is each one had a different diagnosis so I still don't know what's wrong. Does anyone know where I can go in N.Ireland to get some useful treatment or even a correct diagnosis?
