Day 6 - with injury.
Well, it's now 6 days since the pain in my left leg brought last Sunday's long run to a stop & I had to walk the last 5km of 38Km.
Right now, I can't see any improvement & I know I couldn't run even if I had to. Two sessions of Physio during the week & another on Monday; Physio says pain on the outside of the lower leg is referred pain from the damage (or whetever!) to the Gluteus Medius on that side. The strange thing is that the only real pain I feel is in this lower outside part of the leg - a dull throb all the time & more pain doing the lying down side leg raises & one-legged squats which are supposed to strengthen the leg.
I don't know what else to do but go along with the treatment for a few more days, I suppose. Anyhow, I thought I'd leave an update for anyone passing by! Any advice or shared views will be much appreciated...perhaps I should ask on the main message board, but I don't want to bore all of Cool Running with my woes!
Maybe I should ask CR Rudolf!
