Back after a hernia surgery

Posted: 30/11/2013 at 14:15

I definitely can't run yet, I go crazy every time I see someone running and I can't, I am waiting to see surgeon on tuesday and see what happens. 

As far as I know hernia repair with mesh takes longer to heal but hopefully in 2 weeks I will be up and running.

Back after a hernia surgery

Hello guys, had an operation 4 weeks ago, hernia repair with a mesh (not keyhole surgery) although things went well, recovery has been not really as planned, doctor gave me two weeks of work that turned into 4, I am back to work next monday and still don't feel 100%. 

I am planning to run a marathon in May 2014, I decided that if a PB is not possible then I will probably leave it for 2015. If I started training in January, will that give me plenty of time to be strong enough for a marathon in May? Has anyone here had a similar case? What did you do?

People always tell me to ask my doctor before anyone else but doctors are not really runners and don't even run as much as me.

Well done guys who ran and completed and also managed a PB. I wanted a PB but I was 35 seconds off my PB time, when I realised that then I tried to focus on a top ten instead, but the 3 guys in front of me where too quick, finished 11th in the end. 

The event itself is great, the crappy cracked road in mile 10 slows you down a lot especially with a head wind, but can't complain much when there are other very slow, tough hilly courses.

Can't wait for next year!

I ran falmouth half marathon last sunday, went ok, 2 minutes faster than last year.

It was a road race with the nastiest hills I have ever run. I don't know how the winner managed a 1:18!!!

My time: 86 minutes

I had a few issues with my trainers like shoelaces coming off and having to stop to do them and a really bad stomach cramp in mile 2 for some last minute coconut water that didnt go well down before the race.

Next sunday is my last long run, a 20 miler and then taper starts.

What can I do for the next three weeks training wise?

Marathon is on the 14 of april.

thanks guys for the advice. all I can say is that i have been doing my 20 milers religiously on sundays since january with a week and a half off because of the flu.

I have run them at different paces but never under 6:30 a mile and never over the 8 minute per mile.

a few times i felt so good that i carried on for 24 miles.

the event is mainly road with a few grass paths, not very hilly


many thanks

last HM was 5 months ago in birmingham which is pretty flat, did it in 1:22, so I am hoping to break the 3:15 barrier, but a sub 3:30 will make me happy.

after 4 years or running half marathons and 10k, i decided to jump into the full marathon. Just wondering what plan to follow for the actual race would be best, a fast first half and a slow second half? a single paced race all way through? a slow first half and a fast second half? or even considered quarters! 3 miles fast 3 miles slow?

Any runners here that have made similar plans? have they worked? things to consider?

Many thanks!
