Glute Area Injury (Potentially Piriformus)

Posted: 03/08/2014 at 20:28

I have had what I fought was Piriformis for what seems eternity now and getting very frustrated as it doesn't want to go but went to a physio and she says although there's pain coming from the piriformis its my spine especially the left hand side of it   that's coursing it via nerve endings also it feels like sciatica running from the piriformis down to the heel but I feel nothing from my back whats so ever, I have been doing the usual exercises to help things along but it not getting any better in-fact its got worse I find it hard to get out of the bed in the morning also I have a running machine but only manage 20mins after that my leg feels like dropping off.

The Wales Marathon - With Closed Roads

Just brilliant I finished this race slightly over the time that I was aiming for by 10 mins but put it down to the heat  it was just to bloody hot. Lovely course taken in the best of the Pembrokeshire country side thats on offer I carried plenty of fluid around me and there was plenty on route aswell infact every 3 miles also the residents that lived on the route kindly got there garden sprinklers out which was very refreshing and appreciated by all. Will be back next year hoping to beat my time but hoping that it wont be as hot. A big thank you to all the organizers of the weekends events it was just brilliant. Well done.

Looking forward to this race it being my second Marathon since London 1999 knowing it to be far more hillier than Worcester Marathon in March but I am building it up for the Snowdonia in October, I am hoping to do the Welsh Marathon  around the 4 hour mark.

City of Salisbury 10 mile road race

Did this run on the 11th March and I must say it was one of the best that I have entered the course was out into the country north of the city running into villages well of the beaton track the course it self was fairly flat with a few not very steep hils more down than up, it was well marshalled and well organised starting and finishing at the atheletic track. I will certainly enter this race come next year and get another PB.

PS    Hats off to the organisers for a well run event.

Entered this race on the 19th February being the first time I have done this particular race and found that the traffic free course very satisfying it was the first race for me in 2012 and was 8 secs short of a PB but netherless I enjoyed the race which was well marshalled and organised so hats off to all Calne SMaRTT and will be back next year.

Done this race for the first time on Sunday 6th and found it brilliant the weather was great and to cap it all actually got a PB (1hr 36:01 c.t )for the distance hoping that can do better in Reading on the 20th have to beat 1hr 44:04 the only snag was the start time bit on the early side for me but this meant I managed to race back to Swindon in time for my Sunday roast will be back next year. P.S hats of to the organisers and the marshalls did a great job.
