Yep, one of the main symptoms of the sacrum fracture is/was glute issues, which from what I have read is why it is often so difficult to spot the cause until an mri is performed as it acts like may other issues.
I am hoping the glute work I've done this last few months will stand me in good stead. No glute issues so far in this my 3rd return to running. Th other two times it featured heavily.
Hi slashnburn, Can you explain how you feel after running 8-10m at 8mm?
How tall are you?
I suspect you are running everything too fast. I run most of my mileage at about 8mm pace, which is 2mins per mile slower than my 10k race pace. I suspect you have just run yourself into the ground and need to reset by taking some rest then just chilling out and doing nothing more than nice easy slow running for a month or so and then thinking about things from there.
You will just continue to compound the problem if you continue as you are and get slower not faster as the body cannot process the training gains as it's constantly hammered, particularly with less sleep. It all adds into the mix.
You are too hung up on numbers on paper.
By taking you backwards and leaving you knackered, your body is telling you it isn't happy. You need to break the cycle and to do that you have to reset.
You can do something with the sow gps, there's a way of resetting satellite connection. I recall doing it years back. Of course if it's a very old watch then that sort of thing does start to deteriorate.
You should be able to get something adequate for £100, Andrew. Some of the stuff my watch can do with threshold tests etc, I never use most of it.
My watch does display 4 options on a run though. I have 2 screens set up on rotate as I run. Both have time and distance then the one has current and average pace and the other current and average hr.
Ticked along this week with 3 runs so far, including just over 5 miles with 5 x3 min tempo and I have done some bike work each day also. Off out over lunch for 40 mins with 5 x 4 min tempo.
Had follow up mri last night to see if fracture healed so just awaiting feedback on that.
