Debra, the usual really: strengthen the glutes and core, stretch after running (which I never really did) and use the foam roller religiously! Eventually I just forced myself to get back out there and run. It hurt for a while, mainly tightening the following day, but eventually that stopped. I've just entered the Chester Marathon! I really hope that you recover soon, it's so frustrating when you can't do what you enjoy.
Hi Everyone, I just want to to post a posittive story to give a glimmer of hope to anyone out there with a chronic injury.
I was off with PTT for over a year and at times thought I'd never run again. If you search my threads you will see my desperate story.
Anyway, after a year of being back running I am delighted to say that I ran the London Marathon in a respectable time of 3hrs 40 and more importantly, I am injury free!
So my message is, no matter how desperate things are, don't give up; it may feel as though everything you enjoy has been snatched away but bodies do heal eventually. Stick with the rehab and have faith in it.
