Did 2 miles this morning (in the rain!) with lots of stretches before and after and I think all seems OK, but I have to admit I’m still a bit nervous about messing it up again. Laura: Good luck for January, hope all goes well, keep us posted. Ingy: I’d definitely heed what the doc says, and seriously think hard about those January runs, and make sure you are pain free before starting running again.
Wishing you both a healthy and pain free Christmas and New Year
Sorry you are still suffering with this Laura, I have to say this has been the most persistent injury I have had since starting running and I’ve had a few!. I would totally agree with your advice about not running until pain free, I have learned this myself, even if there is only slight pain the more you run with it the worse you will make it and just prolong it. My situation at the moment; I am back running but I am being very careful, just three times a week and short distances . . . if I continue to be pain free I am hoping to be able to crank this up a bit after Christmas and hopefully get back to my normal distances.
This morning before work I went for another test run, just 1.5 miles, lots of stretching before and after and so far pain free. I say “so far” because previously I have not felt anything until at least a day after, keeping fingers and everything else firmly crossed
Yes, done all things you have done, including the foam roller, and like you after my run on Monday it was nowhere like as bad as when it first started but it still ached and I have not run since for fear of making it worse and being back again where I was a couple of months ago . . . At the moment I am thinking if it’s not better after Christmas I'm going to the docs, I have private medical insurance through work so maybe I should make use of for once . . . please post how you get on with the scan, be most interested.
Well I have had pes anserine bursitis since the end of October, I have not had any injection or fluid removal so far but I can sympathise. For me it’s a lot better than it was but every time I go for a test run to see if I can start running again I can still feel it, so feeling a bit fed up. I went for a very short run (1.5 miles) Monday morning and can still feel a slight ache in my knee and its now Friday I was hoping to be back running by Christmas but it doesn't look like that’s going to happen
