i have suffered badly from this in the past - strengthening my glutes is what finally did the trick and correct footwear. i remember from old forums that lots of people used pat straps to get them through a marathon. massage and stretching will also keep the worst of it away - i was able to google search a few different stretches for it - have a try. hope it gets better in time for the marathon
thanks for your posts everyone cycled in the gym today - can manage it when the olympics are on but dont think i'll sustain this after. will try the massage and see how it goes physio said try a gentle 5 min jog end of next week so will keep cross training till then hegs - hope your injury recovers in time for NY
i have not been running for the past 4 weeks and have had to pull out of october marathon. i have baffled two running physios - but one now thinks it is compartment syndrome (anterior)- from what little i know of this i think he is right. physio cant trigger the pain nor can anything else except running - stairs and single leg weight bearing could initially. i am resting ++ had some physio but cant afford anymore (will try my GP again for NHS referral)
anyone had this? what kind of recovery time am i looking at? is cycling ok or does that cause poressure build up? only info could find on the internet was nasty pics of surgical procedures.
