Wow! That's excellent. Maybe it's because we're in London... He ended up having to go private in the end, otherwise I think we'd still be waiting. Back to running now and in fact doing Chester Marathon next weekend. Hope your recovery is as fast!
There are a few bits on here about recovery from hernias, but nothing about exercise while waiting for an op. My husband has been told by his GP that he has a reducable inguinal hernia and should not do any strenuous exercise until it's fixed. He's got an an appt at hospital in September but is looking at about 3 months waiting list for an op. Given he was hoping to run a couple of marathons in this time and cycle up some serious hills - he is not a happy chap.
Obviously he really shouldn't be doing anything too strenuous - but do you reckon he's all right to do some moderate running (shorter distances, not so fast!) and cycling. Anything else people have done to stop themselves (and their wives / partners etc) from going mad whilst waiting for treatment?
It's not causing him any pain at the mo... and it only appeared at the weekend.
It was great!! For some reason I died at about mile 8 which made the rest of it pretty hard..! So not my best marathon time ever. But great views and sites. Loved running through the Piazza Navona in particular - very tempted to grab a bottle of wine on the way through.
Not sure I trusted the timing though. We crossed the start line about 5 minutes after the start. When we crossed the finish the clock said 4.06... yet our official time was nearly 4.08! Not quite sure how they worked that out.
Hope you all had fun and aren't aching too much...
