GIRO how's the marathon training coming along?
Carter did you get caught up in all the issues at the Manchester marathon? I've heard bad things about people taking hours to get their bags back.
Baz - I didn't make it to Manchester. My recurring ITB issue came back during my ultra race in March and I'm currently under the doctor. Instead, I went up Ringinglow to watch the Sheffield HM. I saw ET cruising up there with his good lady.Did you run ?
I didn't run in the end. Real life stuff was more important than training so I knew I hadn't done enough. I'm not fit enough these days to blag a half marathon so I knew there was no point bothering.
That's not good about your ITB. Anywhere near knowing what is causing it?
Been to the physio and he said that everything is extremely tight (due to never stretching at all), I have no flexibility and my knees are weak and out of alignment. My left knee seems to have a mind of it's own so just sticks out to the left so when running a lot it rubs against the ITB, causing friction which leads to the pain. Plenty of stretches and strengthening exercises to do to try and realign the knees which should make running pain free all being well
The Sheff half is a great event now. Done it both years and raised lots of cash for worthy causes. I did 50 miles that week and been injured since. Just getting back to it now. Supposed to be doing North Lincs HM this weekend but might have to sub my OH in....
