Fair play to the medics. A good news story
Great to hear that you’re back out there again Carmona. Fingers crossed everything will hold up and you can keep building!So, a couple of you will have seen on Strava that I am taking the first steps to getting back into running. I have had 3 jabs in the hip area, quite a bit of physio and I now also massage the quad?itb of the left leg myself after each run. The doc who's giving me the jabs of hyaluronic acid, and one 'extra' homeopathic one, thinks some muscle issue in the quad might be what's causing the hip pain.
As I've had a few false dawns before, I'm not getting too cocky about being back just yet. I've done a few 6/8k and today 10k jogs at around 5.20/5.30 km pace. Today's was a cool one, except it's boiling here, cos I met up with a couple of running buddies and did 4k with them as they were warming up. Goddamn it but running with others is so much easier! The leg doesn't feel bad to be honest. I'm hoping to get out every second day if it stays like this, get a base in and slowly increase the distance. I don't plan on trying to increase pace at all for the foreseeable.
If I can lose a few kgs - I had only put on about 5k in the time out - and up the distance, then the aim is to try Valencia in December. 42.2 kms seems a long way away right now but I'll see how things go over the next few months and make a call nearer the day. Hope the gang on here is doing ok. El Guapo (but is he really?) must keep us updated on the auld progress.

Wow! Great stuff EarlY! Looking forward to the details ;-)I dipped into the Ultra scene last Sunday for the Tralee 100k...=Glad to say I finished in 12hrs 58 mins...Training for it was up and down..I couldnt run a single Mile in April due to a back injury but on the 1st of May I did a treadmill test...If I could run for 10 mins without stopping I was going to give it a lash....My longest run for the Ultra was Cork Marathon which I ran well within myself and finished in 4hrs 13...I knew that day is was definitely on because of how easy it felt....I will try and write a more detailed account when I have more time
