Oww Oww Oww!

White Horse Half today.  I've had a "niggle" in my left thigh for a while.  Today it exploded.  Well, that's a bit dramatic, but as the run went on, my leg got more and more sore, until somewhere between 8 and 10 miles it had spread and was making running very, very uncomfortable.  There I was, struggling to keep going, and more and more people passing me.  I really didn't want to give up and DNF, but I was limping home.  2:29:43 chip time, and last in the field.  I hurt.

On the phone to the Osteopath in the morning.

Oh dear!  Sorry to hear that Steve, hope it's not too serious or long lasting but well done for finishing despite the agony.

Hope that settles. You have my sympathy's. Have had the same with my hip - and was very sore when finished today (8miles - Lidl Kingston breakfast run, my longest yet!). By the time I got off the bus home was limping like a good 'un. Ibuprofen and along bath has helped quite a lot but will have to see how it is tomorrow. Hope you will feel better then.

That doesn't sound good. Hope it isn't anything too serious

Oh no! I hope it's nothing serious - you've been doing so well with your running and a HM is amazing even you came in last - as least you finished.

Fingers crossed you're healed for your next HM (I know you've got a few booked in).

Thanks, Sarah.  I'll be phoning the osteopath this morning to get checked in for a going over and assessment.  Next event is the Milton Keynes HM in four weeks.
