Keep running as long as you can. You might go on forever. THE initial injury has done me in. My advice to anyone is if you get a bad joint injury when you get older please get it checked out thoroughly. I am going to jog 1 mile Christmas eve round Wroxton Abbey. Little treat.
It was only about 12 but I had the net in both hands at chin height. Had a 5lb 7oz Chub out the river Cherwell neat Banbury last week. In about 2 feet of water. At Clattercote this year I dived over my seat box to grab my second rod being pulled in and snapped a rib. Fishing is lethal. 6 weeks of he'll that was.
Hi . I got progressively worse and looking back cant believe how much pain I tolerated. I ran 15 miles 3 weeks ago preparing for the Oxford half. It was agony at 10 miles and I ran home. Could hardly walk at work then ran with the club on the Tuesday. I like swimming but its such a pain. In Banbury its pay for parking , then £3.90 to swim. Lane swims are a nightmare public swim is a lottery. Running was simply open the front door.
My marathons have done the real damage. I love the long training runs especially when its freezing cold. Managed 5 Londons , Berlin ,Paris , Jersey twice and Loch Ness. Brighton was my best. I did 5 marathons in 3.24. Funny how you can pace it. I had 2 dinners before Brighton. Chicken Noodles then a chilli and rice with loaded jacket potatoes. 3.14 . Work that one out.
Time to move on. Loads of positives. 5 Londons is a priveledge someone else will get a go now. Great memories.
Hi. Yes beefing up the quads. Did all that but please get an xray and an mri. Avoid the physio. The injury will only get worse. I have strong quads but squatting 4x50 reps every 2 days makes no difference. Please speak to your gp and get referred. Once you are in the loop it will get sorted. For me wait for GP 5 weeks first Outpatients triage in Oxford 5 weeks. Referred to Ramsey surgeon in Banbury 10 days. Xray from meeting him 30 minutes. Advice to stop running immediately etc 15 minutes. Mri 3 days later , surgery a week later.
Please dont delay. Please also ignore people who tell you to run then rest when its hurting. You are injured please please stop and get it sorted. Being hard and a hero finished me off.
