I was really hoping someone could offer me some advice regarding running with a shoulder injury.
i was knocked off my bike a week ago and have injured my right shoulder when it hit the ground. Xrays have revealed no fractures but i am waiting on an MRI to check the soft tissues. I am currently unable to move the shoulder much and am having to take quite a few painkillers to manage the pain. I am however due to run the london marathon in 5 weeks and having had to pull out last year due to post viral fatigue I am desperate to get to the startline this year!
Training had been going well so I want to keep going and although I am able to use a bike to keep my legs fit I really want to get in the odd running session. I was therefore wondering if anyone has any experience of using a sling or another form of shoulder immobilser to run with??
I knwo it sounds crazy and I should just give up and focus on recovering but I am sure many of you can understand what it is like to be determined to do a race come hell or high water!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
