Hi Anthony, I'm four weeks post THR and searching to see what the chances are of running again. It's nearly 10 years since you posted your thread and I'm wondering how things went for you? Are you still running?
Hi Siouxie, I've been searching to see what the chances are of running again after a THR op. I had it done four weeks ago and seem to be making good progress. Having read the problems you were having back in July 2010, it's left me wondering how you got on? Did everything work out for you in the end, or is it an on going battle?
Fantastic! Really enjoyed the race and thanks to Mark for all the work he obviously put in to making it a success and not forgetting the marshalls, without these special volunteers we runners wouldn't be able to do the races.
The course was great, the medal is superb quality for a 10K and a mug as well, what more can anyone want for £13/£15, excellent value.
Not forgetting the rain, isn't that what we were all praying for after the heat of Saturday? I was anyway!
As for the measurement; I measured 6.15 miles on my Garmin, maybe that's why I did a good time? So I'm not complaining. I know how much GPS's vary, for example I ran with two ladies last Thursday, I recorded 4.55, another recorded 4.78 and the other 4.89 and we all have the same Garmin!
Looking forward to next year, I think there will be more Potters Trotters from Stoke on Trent with me next time!
I'm so looking forward to this race, I lived in Speke until I was 18 and it's more than 50 years since I ran around Speke Hall as a child. I'm travelling up from Stoke on Trent, so hope the roads are clear on Sunday morning. I'm hoping my family, who still live nearby, can make it to cheer me on!
I've got a hip bursitis at the moment and I've also got Piriformis Syndrome, which I thought was a hip problem for a long time! I'm still running though, with the help of lots of stretching and anti-inflammatories. Could this be your problem?
