This forum is amazing - went to the sports therapist - She said it was my hip flexor - She picked this up on my first appointment.without any indication from me on what I thought it might be. Thank you Liz for this assistance - it is along process and she advised swimming if I felt pain free - but to keep moving giving me certain stretches.
It is down to lack of strength training and pushing too hard through races.

Liz, thankyou, this really does help. And my hip was getting stiff  a week ago, so the warning signs were there looking back. Will get to a sports therapist as suggested.  Lack of stretching may of also contributed. Hope you are back to racing yourself.

Ealing half tomorrow? Sudden pain yesterday when walking, from hip. Tried a run this morning;  just a little  pain when I lengthen my stride; I have  more pain  when walking.

it seems to effect my walking more - tried Tiger Balm - really puts heat into the area. But temped to do the half not sure what to do?   My heart is saying yes but my head is not sure. What is the best test I can do?   short notice I know. Cornish

Don't look back, run as far as the eye can see. Embrace the rain with the wind wrapping around you like a blanket of energy. Giggle through the puddles and smile that nothing matters while you run. All your worries suddenly have answers and everything is not as bad as it seems. Wow what a wonderful moment in time a run can give you! Price less.... Thank you for sharing my run today along The Thames cross Kew bridge back over Chiswick Bridge to Ealing Common in London. Happy last day of 2012.

I would rather have a T shirt and not a medal. It replaces my very worn out T shirt from my last race.

sponsors get returns from being seem on my T shirt, but my medals go straight in the draw with the rest.

Under active thyroid famale

Is it still Safe to do long distance running with a under active thyroid? Diagnosed six months from a routine blood test and do not have any symptoms or weight issues. My Drs (all three of them)have not run before and they all sound like they are reading from a script by saying there is very investigation and they have little knowledge on the relationship with exercise and under active thyroid. I am 49 female 5.3ish. Is there any research or a long distance runner with the same condition that can help? Cornish

Any free back treatments in London?

In a nutshell started to get lower back pain three months ago - feel it standing straight on the tube in the morning on the way to work  and when I put my 'Nora Batty tights on' the movement is bending over and bringing my knee up towards my chest  I have pain and restrictive movment.

Run without pain and it goes after about 5 miles very strange!

Went for x-ray two days ago at Ealing hospital after my Dr said pain killers and an x-ray..

Is there any where in West London that will help an ordinary working girl who is not able to reap the benefits of someone who is on a good salary to help fix my dilema?

Or anyone with a good back ground on back paid can help this runner to find a good way without drugs.

Happy running and the run along the Thames  via Key bridge looped around via Chiswick  bridge was wonderful this morning. 

Thanks Pasty

After many injuries over the years - but we always pull through don't we!

Now menopause is happening have this effected anyones running in effort or speed?

 Am now running a steady 10 miles every Saturday morning and drop to 7.5 once a month.

Never race,  I just enjoy the journey not to have any aches or pains.

 Thinking of doing  something special for my 50th next year December 2012 something challenging but maybe great to promote our age group and get some companies in volved to sponsor me or a group.

The new age for females - Done five marathons nothing exceptional - best under 4 hours.

 Running about 10.30 per/miles over ten but not rushing and feeling good at the end.

Do a mid week run if time.

What next?  Any suggestions?  thinking more promotional inspirinng to keep going.

Live in  West London with lots of running spaces in Ealing so never far from the Thames.
