Just for your interest folks - Been having physio, along with roller, percussive massage, stretching and building up the surrounding muscles, and have got back to running (albeit slower and less quantity currently)

Glute Area Injury (Potentially Piriformus)

For the first time I've actually got properly injured. Had to happen at some point

Pain is in the interior glutes on my left hand side, affecting the top of the hamstring with occasional shooting pains/tingles down the outer leg. The internet points to a Piriformus injury, but I'm not trained enough to diagnose this myself

The damage occurred a 5 weeks ago during running (I'm usually out running 5-6 days/week). For the first week I did what any runner generally does, and tried to run it off, but the pain got so great it hurt to walk.   I have not been able to run since without pain, so have been using a spin and arm bike to stay fit while resting the area, but the pain has not fully subsided   I have had a couple of deep tissue massages in the area which have relived and loosened the muscle, and I'm inquiring with physios about treatment, but can anyone else help with advice who's had a similar pain?   Cancelling races left right and centre, main aim is to now be fit for VLM training starting 8th Dec at this rate.

Didn't really enjoy this one sadly. Was pacing someone to sub 1.40, they twisted their ankle at 6 miles and had to drop out, so I turned it into a fartlek session and worked up to 31st place in 1.33 or something. My fault for not researching how very trail it was - didn't enjoy the bottleneck little steps.
