Sounds like a back/rib thing CM, I get it frequently, actually convinced myself I had a punctured lung it was so bad one Christmas Eve. Very common place for back issues in Women due to bra strap, I have actually found some bras trigger it off. Also got to watch posture constantly.

She is always exhausted for a few days after a seizure. To see gp today to have anti epilepsy drugs increased.

No she came back Monday morn, didn't say much about Ilford tbh. She went to Natural history museum and Buckingham palace and walked past the most expensive st in the country which she wasn't impressed with, says park circus in Glasgow is way plusher and posher. They walked miles as one of the underground lines was shut. She came back safe & sound and he's coming back up here on 2nd October.

I know I just want to b pain free and to b able to run at same speed as I could a yr ago. My runs after last massage got faster without more effort and today's run was probably a good min per mile faster than the last yr with foot pain. What is mad is I have absolutely no pain in foot or heel when sports masseuse presses around. It is all in ITB, quad & calves/ peroneals. It all stems from when I 1st hurt my quad 8 yrs ago walking round Pompeii. My quad cramped up as I was stepping dwn off a very high kerb and I just had to keep stepping dwn damaging the muscle. Then 6 yrs later when I stupidly went to military fitness class a wk after my 1st marathon that was the weak point in my leg due to scar tissue that hadn't bn dealt with. So serious damage done and again not really dealt with once I got ok mobility back I stopped working on it. My foot pain started running dwn a big hill a yr ago and no doubt was caused by a weak damaged quad that was making all the other muscles work harder to compensate. So from now on it's regular stretching, pilates (started last wk) and a yoga session every wk as well as regular sports massage. And once fully recovered from sports massage I will b starting some regular squats to build the strength up in quad again. Then I can start thinking about marathon & ultra training and deciding what to enter. Think I might go for Strathearn marathon again.

So hope we never get to the stage here where we have to pay for healthcare, who can afford to b forking out that kind of money with a new baby? Awful! But fab that's she's doing well.

I had my follow up sports massage today, ran 7 miles there as car less cos hubby's gone fishing. Had 90 min massage and legs r so much better, nice smooth muscles and IT band now, wasn't as painful as last time, had it's moments but not the torturous affair of 2 wks ago. And I can now stretch my right IT band the same as the left. I then ran 3miles home and it felt great. And can't believe I ran 10 miles today and didn't have to limp to school at 3 o'clock. WOOHOO!

I'd b in tears whole way round too, was a mess at the two race for life I did with all the messages on peoples backs and actually the only family member ever to have bn affected by cancer was my Papa who was in his mid 70's and chose not to have treatment as he had a dodgy heart from rheumatic fever as a child and never thought he would even make it to 50 and my Nana had died couple of yrs b4 and he had dementia caused by all the open heart surgeries he'd had. He was actually ready to go. So actually I think I am part of one of the few families who hasn't had to endure the agony of cancer. Yet it still has me in floods when I go to these things.
