Really pleased for you with the hearing. My OH and I spent some time frequenting Audiology departments when she had severe hyperacusis years ago, it had been a frustrating struggle but with the sound generators - essentially hearing aids programmed to emit a desensitising noise profile - her brain gradually adjusted and turned the gain back down. So yes the technology is amazing but so is the human brain!
Anyway... all good here thanks, little boy just turned 1 year old which has gone by scarily quickly. Cutback week for me this week after managing weeks of 49, 48, 50 miles, which is the first time I've managed to string together a few decent weeks of training since before VLM and feeling better for it.
Next target race is Purbeck in September - just the 16.5 miler though not the marathon. Will probably do Overton 5 before that too.
How is he getting on? Do you know which knee bursa is/was affected? There are three different bursae around the knee and they are different injuries.
I had prepatellar bursitis around 6 weeks before my first marathon - I believe it was caused by too much kneeling one particular weekend on top of the increased training mileage. It looked bad having a big swollen lump at the front of my kneecap, and it was tender to the touch, but it did not affect my range of motion and once the initial panic had worn off I was able to train pretty much as normal other than avoiding any kneeling during the yoga classes that I was doing back then.
The inflammation died down very gradually and my knee looked roughly normal again after about 8 weeks, and I managed to hit my GFA target at the marathon. Everyone is different, but hopefully that's of some reassurance!
