Morning folks! Just got my entry in, and was kinda expecting it to have been full by now so really chuffed!
Will be my 4th Abingdon but first marathon since September 2012 due to injury. Really can't wait, training is finally falling Into shape and have a half booked for mid May which I'm on track for.
Feeling good for the first time in ages!! ????
I have suffered with spinal stenosis, narrowing of the sponal column. And also degenerative disk disease. Came on last summer, and as a 39 marathon and 9 ultra runner the lack of activity due to pain was incredibly frustrating. I had constant dull pain and most mornings had to lift my legs out of bed in order to get going. I looked and sounded like a 90 year old!
I decided to go for the surgery at the end of may this year and it's been a complete success. I had a fantastic surgeon from Egypt and he has worked wonders. In now pain free, getting fitter and am back running around 2-3 miles.
I opted for Cofex implants. google them, and see what you think.....
Best of luck and so what you think is best for you. I did and the results have been amazing! ????
