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.
