Game Over? #Running
‘It might be burstitis’ she said nonchalantly as UltraBoy looked over at the GingaNinja, her face told him everything he needed to know.
He’d been fearing medical attention since before he raced across the width of the UK at The Wall, he knew that his hips were in trouble and now this young physiotherapist was telling him it might be all over.
‘If it is, it’s early stages and we can hopefully get it under control’ she added as panic strode purposefully across the face of UltraBoy…
The realisation that running might be over for him is not something he is ready to face. UltraBoy was scared.
The reality is I’m in trouble but with four races to go between now and October I figure I can get through them them with a combination of physiotherapy, stretching and training – I can’t stop running yet. After that we shall see.
But what a physiotherapist, even though I’m an absolute cripple today she was able to work my hips properly which was awesome.
Bummer, dude. Is it something that can heal with reduced mileage over time?
Fingers crossed for some good news at your next visit.
Yikes that doesn’t sound good. Here’s hoping the physio and stretching works for you. I know, if anybody can keep going, it will be UltraBoy.
Argh! Hopefully it’s NOT that and is sopmething easily fixable which heals in super-quick time!! I’ve currently got heel pain which I’m sulkily self-diagnosing as PF. Thinking it might be time to switch to triathlon for a few months … fancy a new challenge?
Well that would be the solution, sadly Triathlons don’t fill me with quite the same love – will see what happens at this weekends half marathon 🙂 get the heel pain looked at
Get it looked at? But don’t the best superheroes just keep running ultras on their injuries 😉
Well yes which is why I’m still going to roll up to RTTS and NDW100 as well as a half this weekend and a 30km next week. I might as well go out with a bang
