I am abstaining from the list for the time being. I can't believe I'm even jealous of the bonkers fell racing! Meanwhile I have done some indoor rowing, which doesn't hurt my hip at all, but really, really hurt my ass. I had to give up after 3000m as it was agony. Is it acceptable to take a cushion to the gym with me to sit on on the rower?

I'll have a long wait for a proper diagnosis. First available with my GP when I phoned up last week for something else entirely - 14th August. 

Nice work on the 5000 PP, are you feeling better now?

I can't actually get an appointment at my GP for a whole month, which is more than mildly annoying. I cannot run without pain, so whatever it is, it's getting worse rather than better. I think I'm going to have to accept that my targets for this autumn aren't going to happen and I need to find some exercise that I can do that doesn't hurt. I'll test some things out at the gym tomorrow. I'm not sure that cycling or elliptical will work since they still move the hip. We'll see. I just have to break it to the team manager that I won't be racing on Wednesday.

Where is everyone? 

I've done precious little running this week, and the dreaded internet diagnosis is a hip labrum tear. I hope Google is wrong, but I really fear it isn't.

I googled. Google is evil. My symptoms are exactly what t'internet describes for a hip labrum tear. If this is right I can write off the whole of the rest of the year.

Thanks Lit, I've managed to get in tomorrow with the guy I used to see regularly when I had money, but if that doesn't fix it I'll give the Cuban a call.

Literatin - tell me more about the giant Cuban. I'm confined to the house again as running yesterday really didn't help matters.

Happy Birthday Jools!

Yes, I did mean August 3rd, got my weekends muddled. 

No clue what's wrong with my hip. It started hurting on Sunday during my warm up and hasn't stopped hurting since. It's very clunky and feels like it needs someone to shove it back into place.

Blimey, we're a bunch of old crocks on here. I'm sidelined with a hip issue, which I'm hoping will go away fairly soon as I've no clue how to treat it. 

OO - best advice I can give is start off a lot more slowly than you think you need to. It's all too easy to run waaaay too fast on the first lap as it feels stupidly slow for some reason. Hang in there for 11 more laps at a sensible pace then cane the last 200m. If it's likely to be a spread out race they should advise you before hand if you are supposed to move out or stay put when being lapped, which is very useful info for both lapper and lappee. Just don't assume they can hear you coming though. If you're expecting the slower runner to move out you need to muster enough breath to shout 'track' as you come up behind. Many tracks have a random extra lane on the inside of the home straight. Do not step into this lane. It *should* be coned off if there is one, but you can't guarantee such things. 

Now, I know this might be a long shot, but does anyone fancy a bimble round the Dovedale Dipper on 10th August? 26.2 miles but nowhere near race pace.
