It's stopping me from running at all and I can feel it when I walk or more if I bend or twist but it's not so bad that I need to go to A&E. I was hoping someone might have had a similar injury and they could say it sounds like such and such. Basically I'm really worried that it could be an hernia and was hoping for reassurance that it isn't because money is really tight at the moment and I can't afford to take time off work especially for what could be a lengthy spell as I don't get paid for sick leave.
Hi guys, wondering if anybody can help me with diagnosing a niggling injury that's getting worse.
Whilst training for vlm I started getting a pain that felt just like I'd overdone it on ab crunches and put it down to the extra miles working my stomach muscles.
Anyway the marathon came and went and the pain in my stomach died down but recently it's come back and got a lot worse. The pain seems now to be coming from specifically a spot around 2.5 inches above and 2.5 inches out from my privates on both sides of my ab wall. There's no lump but it's now so bad I can't run at all and my groups coach thinks it could be a sports hernia. All the symptoms match this except it started on both sides at the same time whereas a sports hernia tends to be on one side or at least starts on one side then ends up effecting the other side as well.
Has anybody experienced this or thinks they might have an idea what it could be? I'll ring for an appointment with my gp monday but if anyone has an idea what it could be I could look into it and try to treat it until I see her on thurs/fri ( maybe even longer with the waiting list at my doctors for none emergencies)
I live in the North West and there's not many flat races around these parts. The problem I have is I'm so rubbish at running up hill. I don't know what I can do to improve it, it seems like I've tried everything.
I regularly do hill sessions, go for long runs on the west pennine moors and even enter fell races but always seem to get blown out by all sorts of runners on the up hills. The reason I do them is because I feel it will ultimately make me a better runner but it can be very disheartening.
I have to admit that every few months I'll find a flat race and cynically attempt to get a pb regardless of overall position.
£45 with no option of not having the ea license which is included.We pay for our own xc (£4) and vest (£10) and then there's a track pass paid to the council which is about £50 a year. They're not shy are they.
The above is very true, but hopefully if you don't pick up any serious injuries the average person can hope to improve for ten years or so, although 5 as a conservative minimum would be about right. Don't expect to continue making massive improvements every time you enter a race though.
