Nonstick, morning! Yeah after a 10 miler had sharp pains and could hardly put weight on foot side right side. Went to physio, completed some stretches, strength work, to loosen hips and buttock. Mainly with a ball and resistance band.
Have ditched speed LT sessions and just run general aerobic runs (7:12-7:55). Dropped mileage down to 15 then built up again. Physio reckons it built up over time through quick pace runs as the buttock is where the power comes from. Ran a half in 1:28 early Nov and felt it come back albeit to a lesser extent.
things loads better so must be getting stronger but worried about what will happen when the quicker sessions start when mara training kicks in on 4th Jan, we'll see......
