9 years in a row, no luck for me. Someone mentioned doing Edinburgh instead - I'm not sure I'd bother, did it this year and wasn't really impressed by the organisation.
My first race for roughly 7 years, first one as an insulin dependant diabetic and I had surgery on both legs just over 12 months ago.
I ran a personal worst, but it was ace
Thanks, surgeon didn't say much at the time. Two weeks is up next week so will have a go then I guess.
Can't believe I started this nearly 4 years ago!
Had the op just under a week ago, and it's been better that I thought. Bruised and painful, but I'm walking without any crutches.
Pretty pleased,but haven't really hadmuch adviceon post-op recovery. Anyone who's had the surgery got any advice on exercises I can try and when I'd be OK to try running?
Just in case anyones interested, I've seen a consultant who has referred me to phsio. I've got until Oct, and if its not better then its chopping time!
Really impressed with the physio, looked at other muscle groups in my legs to see if they're contributing, so I've got a set of exercises and stretches, will have to see how things go.
