Ed, I'm in the same boat. Primarily a runner but cycle to work. Came off my bike just over a week ago and broke my collarbone. Recommended to bike with simple phyio exercises. 6 weeks for bone to heal properly. Final scan 03-Feb.
Elavation gain was 199m and loss was 202m
Mark - great race and well organised. Totally different from pounding the pavements. I'll have to make sure I'm nearer to the front at the start next year!
I've been running 10k 3 times a week since early January with a local running club. I had the usual aches and pains to start with but I've got a achey feeling in my right hamstring for about 2 weeks.
It doesnt stop me from running, there is no direct pain or bruising but I feel it more when I'm sitting down. I regularly stretch after running and only run slowly before starting any run.
I was wondering whether I need to stop running or whether I need to perform specific hamstring relative stretches to help?
