Katy!!!!!!! This is a learning curve for all us marathon virgins..... I know now not to run through the pain .... More core focus and sorting out hips and getting physio appointments earlier!!!! My knee is still not right but physio thinks it will be fine with no long term damage so getting it strapped up tonight and fingers crossed!!!!! Get yourself fixed and get back out there!!!! You will be stronger and fitter and wiser for it all!!! Can only be a positive outcome
There are loads of other races around so do not worry ... Maybe sign up for a half to get you in the swing of it ... Royal parks is a good one!!!!! Take care xxx
Hey chris ... Same problem as you butler outer knee so roller and ice and baths and no running!!! I only signed up yesterday and loads of us out there are having these issues ... We have till the 21st to get better !!!! I am seeing physio on Wednesday and you should try too ! Just to be sure it's nothing else... Good luck and keep us posted and good luck for the marathon!!!
Katy! Don't despair ... Don't run on it and totally stretch out this week. My knee went at the weekend and I read what happened to you whilst in utter despair on the sofa!!!!! i have the same issues .... Lazy glute, tight hip flexors and now left knee is buggered. But I am now literally resting till physio on Wednesday and no running!!!! This is muscular so can be fixed with tlc ...please don't defer just yet and get some good stretches in !!!!!!!!! Big big big hugs xxxx loads of rest!!!!! I have faith we can be fixed!!!!!!
totally in the same boat and now worrying!!!!Last long run yesterday and after 17 miles my glute pain resulted in chronic knee pain! Have iced and using ibuprofen.......but pain walking .... and i think the roller made it worse! Katy, how is the knee now????! Have been on sofa all day..praying its all ok for 21st......
