Harmander - now that does sound more encouraging! I was going to run the actual course when I got close to my 20 mile run but doing it earlier would be great. The only thing is that I can't confirm at the moment given that I've just done my first long run since I was injured, but the 8 miles I ran today was at 13 mile pace. I don't want to mess you around but would love to do it if I'm still uninjured closer to the time.
Russell - So pleased to hear about your run (the second one) That's really good news!
Harmander - very kind offer but your pace is quite fast for me!
Chris - many welcomes to the thread..
So news from my end. Saw the physio on Thursday and I have been discharged - yay! I ran 3 miles on Thursday and 8 miles today so really feel that I am back in the game. Today my fitness was there, so all that cross training was worth it, but my hip felt a little sore at the end. I'm going to continue with the exercises though.
So out last night for a 40 minute run and did a 5k which I'm pleased with as I ran it all. I wasn't out of breath either, and could have gone on so the fitness, such as it is, seems to be holding. Tomorrow I see the physio and I'm going to walk/run 5 miles but I haven't decided the intervals yet.
