well stress fractures do exist but would have thought they were rare in upper femur. Your symptoms could be anything in the hip.
I could have sworn that my hip problems were a fracture of upper femur it just felt that way. Intense pain on pushing down on leg. It was in fact the labrum (fleshy socket) of the hip that has become detached. Go and see a hip specialist, you never know.
By the way, all of the hip tests done manually even by specialist showed no hip problem at all. Only MRI disclosed the issue.
I intend to be there on time....but on the off chance wanted to know specifics on how long starting mats open for.
I have trained. I would love to come day before but cannot for good reason and unforseen circumstances which are very irritating.
I will have a number...that is all sorted.I have a bike picking me up at Euston and will be at Blackheath in less than half an hour. I have done this before.
I deserve to be there as much as anyone.
As for Muzza you are making poor judgements and you are unnecessarily provocotive. Why not have a go at the 5000 people who have not trained, who cannot run, who will get in everyones way, who will end up in St Johns tents and should not be there at all.
