Hi Mark, I really feel for you and looks like I might be joining you at the back. My injury seems to be caused by a bulging or herniated disc which is leading to lots of pain and a completely dead leg. Yesterday it also started buckling under me...not good.
Just going to have to rest up between now and then and cross my fingers for a miracle.
Pendle in a blizzard is a scary experience mattl, nearly lost at least 1 child up there!
I dd the Goal-den girls 10k in Blackpool, went really well for the first 5.5 miles as I was running second to my superfast team mate but then the wheels really fell off in the shape of the recurring trapped sciatic nerve which gives me a complete dead leg, right down to my toes.
Finished 4th, time a bit rubbish but now it turns out that the race was actually 6.6 miles due to a course marking error so the time's not so bad now.
Have been to the docs this morning, he wants an MRI scan on my back and has given me some strong anti inflammatorys. Boston Marathon 3 weeks today so hoping for some miraculous cure now.
4th time running the event and the best so far, well done Alan! The new start was excellent, felt really well organised and I appreciated the starting pens. PB for me and my sister in law really enjoyed her first half marathon
