Minni - really feel for you as it sounds as though it'll be a tough few months. Is there anything else that you've always wanted to do but haven't had the time becuase of all the running?

 Erm, nope.

Knock, knock.  Please may I come in for a moment?

I am due to have surgery on a labral tear in my hip and TR mentioned that Philpub and Homerun had both had hip surgery and recovered well. 

Guys, I know you hang around these parts and wanted to ask if either of you also had a labral tear?

Chickadee - Hello!!   Yes, I can't access the 3:30 thread at all.  Someone sent me a link but when I click on it I am not logged in and when I try to log in I can't get back to it. And you're right its disappeared completely off the threads.  Not sure what is going on there.  How are you?  You're almost at 3:15!  My year continues to be a catalogue of disasters!

OO I would have said there are a lot better doing the rounds!

SJ ouch that is painful. But eye lubricants may help out. (I literally put a manky stick in my eye a few years ago 

I read that as manly stick when skimming over...

Right, so who pool runs?  I can still run at the moment just not very well.  I will continue to do as much as I can but thought I should master the art of pool running before surgery so I can hopefully I can do it in recovery.

Surgery is booked for 9th December. Yes, 9th of December, as in 3 MONTHS FROM NOW.   That would mean no VLM and to be honest by the time I get back on my feet I will be about 103 and well past my sell by date.  So, I've asked to be put on the cancellation list.

Great performances over the weekend especially from SJ & OO.

OO so pleased for your result yesterday.  That is a brilliant performance.  I couldn't help notice another pic of you topless again!

No discussions yet - just a letter.  I'm not interesed in a non-surgical approach to be honest.  I've had this for well over a year and had 5 months on prescription anti-inflammatories, 10 months of physio, periods of complete rest, periods of concentrating on core and strength, I've stretched so much that I now have an exceptional range of movement in my hip joints and nothing has helped. 

Its not the result I wanted but the quicker the knife comes out the better.

+1 for the garmin replacement service.  I will be doing this once I'm training again.

Hip update.  Scan results are in.  Spinal can shows some degenerate change but nothing to cause any concern.     Hip scan shows a labral tear.    Awaiting a date for surgery.

Great report SJ! What does SBU stand for? I'm coming over to do two of the trail races in Nov - ullswater and erm, can't remember. They are on the same weekend.

OO - it wasn't the most pleasant experience but interesting at the same time. Whimp!!

I went to see the Body Worlds exhibition last week. Has anyone else seen it? Totally fascinating and well worth a visit.

Poacher - I hear you, I hear you!  This is where I am at:  Now had two scans and awaiting results (should hear next week).  Last scan also involved local anaesthetic being injected into the joint to give some relief but this didn't help at all.  I think this is positive because that means its probably not a labral tear and probably coming from my back.  At the time of my scan I'd put in a biggish week beforehand and this always relieves some pain but its not sustainable.   Resulting from the big week I now have a small tear/pull in the calf and had to pull out of a fell race last week.  I'm now on 10 days no running and then see how it is.   This is making the hip pain worse.  The last two night have resulted in poor sleep because of it.  So, as far as Comrades is concerned I am still not in a position to think about entering.  Boo.   I've been on the bike this morning and heading down to the coast to walk with the dog this afternoon.  Btw, I had dinner at the Old Boat House last night - have you been there?  I highly recommend it if you haven't.   And, did you do the Coastal marathon last weekend?  And, are you still working 40 hours a day doing 10 jobs????

MsE - how can we ever explain pace?!!  I'd say definitely terrain and dodging involved there.  You probably slowed down when meeting/passing people then speeded up in between?  You probably ran the 6 miles as a fartlek instead of tempo!  Either way it doesn't matter but shows you are going very well.

Lorenzo - my cousin has done it a few times and rates it.  However, he is more of an easy paced runner so not sure if this makes a difference.  I know it can be quite exposed and it in the middle of winter.... Brrr.  I think Poacher did it last year?

Happy birthday Birch.

Gul - crazy as ever.

Off to defer Yorkshire marathon and GNR.

Like ^ 

Yo folks.

Comrades:  I can't think about it until I have the results of my MRI scans back.  Second one booked for Tuesday, and Arthrogram to be precise, where dye is injected directly into the joint prior to scanning...

So, with this coming up I decided I might as well do a full week of training.  This consisted of 6m on Tue, 4m on Wed with strides, 6m on Friday, 6m on Sat including parkrun (2nd lady and first old lady but very slow!) and finished the week of with a 20 today.  Result?  Flipping hip feels better than it has done in weeks!  WFT?
