Sticky - better might be an exaggeration, but I got to normal gait today on our recce of the York course, it was slow, and I hope I don't seize up too badly overnight, and we did find a few hills, including a major drag in the final mile, what's that all about?

Well done on going over 40, I only did that for the first time when I followed Sam's plan in 2013.

Hobbled round the ParkRun, again not getting fluid at all til I hit 7 miles and was nearly back home by then, it did all feel slightly less weird just not highly functional.

I did meet Sarah A and Angela at the start though, so it was worth it!

Hi all I've ben having a killer week, a couple of incidents at work = no time at all to get ready for my trip.

Am now here in York and funnily enough thinking of jogging round ParkRun this morning, but I mean really jogging, leg feels a little better again, building on the slight betterness from before.

Sarah a I read your report in the week - awesome, you really captured the event, and sold it to me anyway!

BB It could be meralgia paraesthetica, not fun, check it out, and let me know if you find anything that works!

I had one at the height of marathon training in 2009 or 10, had it attacked by a physio and was told to take the rest of that week off so as to run the Reading Half that Sunday, the treatment was a real scream job, and I pitched up at Reading not knowing of I could run or not. Got a PB!

Good luck for today Mc Hilly - loved the 20K when I did it and always meant to return I've just booked a weekend down there in October.

You have a few races lined up there!

Thanks for all the support over this maddening moving feast of an injury - had a lot of cramping overnight but just laid it across the Powerplate in the kitchen & it seems to have liked that a lot!

Jogged round the Pride 10K yesterday, off to marshal Junior ParkRun shortly.

Sticky well done at York, qute twisty so that will be where the second went! And a few more!

Malcs I'm getting nervous about York now, love reading your updates, hoping to check out the course next weekend, preferably on foot!

Hi Malcs!

Sounds like you are having le blast, yes work does get in the way of training I find, it's lovely having the freedom to explore rather than just cramming it in.

My GP is no expert in running injuries, but it's basically a trapped nerve condition, which feels right. It's now driving me insane, goes almost normal for a while, then when it's hometime refuses to walk down the road!

Key junctures on the left side are now getting strained, and I'm wondering if I'm too fragile for 2 x marathons a year as proved to be the case last time out.

Wow that's a frenzy of entering Stan!

Just had a massage. Hopefully a good move.

sarah a wonderful report, I must get myself up there, love coastal runs. Marvellous job on the 10K as well.

Having managed to jog round Park Run on Saturday, [adductors sore, quads stiff / numb, knee felt jammed on that right hand side, left glutes & knee got a bit sore as did right calf and soleus, downhills awkward]..... there was a glimmer of hope on the way home when everything seemed to go to normal movement patterns briefly.

On Sunday the right leg definitely felt better, so I did the half, going through a whole spectrum of compensations and symptoms, including a wierd sharp thing in 3rd or 4th toe for a while, everything from collapsy knee to calf protesting, although again there was some easing, particularly after 10 miles, I could really feel hip flexors on both sides.

I'm back to pre-Glasgow levels since, neural feel with DOMs on top, and all was quite unstable yesterday morning, then had a brief period of almost natural walking in the afternoon, only to regress to shunty stiffness completely again later.

I went to my GP last night about something else, mentioned it, she reckons it's Meralgia Paraesthetica.

Looking back at my log, symptoms first arose 22 days ago.

From the photos they took at the half, it looks like I'm collapsing into the bucket on the right side, but then had just hopped over the wonky timing chip mat so hard to tell.

Sticky88 - what a great job, & a great job too!

I could have been in York but it turned out my sister was away at a festival so will stay at home. Didn't travel to the Leeds either, so haven't done any f teh season ticket 10Ks yet.

It should be fun.
