Thanks for posting this, I'm due to have the procedure 19/12 so am intrigued on how your return to running goes. I'm sure you'll be back to your pre AF times soon given your current process.
I currently have a PR PB of 19:16 so hoping I don't lose too much for too long when the ops been done. I currently suffer from periodic SVT which when it hits stops me in my tracks, so will be glad when I can run without fear....
Hi, when I run I get a sciatic type pain radiating from the top of my but/bottom of my back down the back of both legs. I can't feel it at all when I walk or sit. It eases off after around 1 to 1.5 miles and then I can comfortably go on to finish my run (anything up to 10 miles) with no after effect. It just feels uncomfortable when I start to run - more of a jarring aching sensation than acute pain - worse when running down hill and less when going up hill.
First felt it when I ran on Saturday, and also I cross-trained last night and didn't feel it at all, rested today but took a few jogging steps to test it, and there it was!
I've read up on piriformis type injuries but these seem to be isolated to one side, where as this is completely symmetrical.
Does it have an official certificate? Cannon hill park run recently got an official certificate and it had to extend the course by around 60m to get it, despite thinking they had accurately measured it previously.
Interestingly they still let times/records stand before it was added to, which they shouldn't really.
