Why are there no soft surfaces to run on in winter? The parks, fields, and trails are still there, I'm happily running on them.
If you really are struggling outdoors you could always restart on a treddie which should be a little more forgiving. That or just start with very slow short jogs on the road and build up carefully.
Tigerlily - sorry to intrude on this thread but hearing about your SF I have got a suspected one (hip) and waiting for diagnosis by MRI scan in the next week or two. Obvviously depends on what it is and a long way off rehab yet but would be interested to hear how yours was and how you got back to normal.
Meanwhile looking forward to a swim this afternoon, not something I would usually say
Thanks tigerlily, appreciate that. I'm aware that it's a more serious problem if it occurs in neck of femur, that's not to make light of yours in any way but I am guessing I need to wait for the MRI, which is on the 8th though I have no idea how long they take to be reported. X Ray as you say was normal.
Main symptom seems to be groin pain, initially only on running but progressed to on walking as well and am limping. Why it should occur now rather than a few months ago when I was doing heavier mileage I don't know.
Anyway remains to be seen what it actually is. Encouraging to know you are back running.
JJ - good luck with your rehab, I hope it goes well for you.
