Slow recovery and I really miss running!

I bit the bullet and forked out for a private assessment with a physiotherapist on Wednesday who confirmed by GP'S diagnosis of soft tissue damage in the groin area. I've had this injury since early January and I am so fed up with not being able to run. However today I decided I would walk one of my routes and see how I got on. I had to really slow down but I managed to walk 4k before the pain stopped me. This is a great improvement from two weeks ago but I've still got a long way to go.On Friday I finally got a letter to arrange to have an NHS physio appointment so at least I won't have to worry about paying for private treatment now. My aim is to be running again by Easter so wish me luck please.

  • Oh dear, poor you. It must be really frustrating not being able to run. I hope your physio will be able to put you right quite soon

  • Oh, you sound so frustrated! I do hope you'll be on the mend soon. I'm sure that you'll be running by Easter. Good luck!

  • Fingers crossed for you, Easter is not that far away. In the meantime can you do can you do any of the strength & flex podcasts to keep you active without doing any further damager?

  • Good luck, Twizzle x

  • Oh, what a shame, it must be horrible and you sound pretty fed up. It does sound like you have improved a good bit in the last 2 weeks though, which is great, and hopefully the physio will continue to make a difference. Good luck Twizzle - I really hope you are back out by Easter, keep your chin up.

  • I hope the appointment comes through soon for you. Physio Can work wonders. So hopefully as soon as you see them you will be on the path to recovery, good luck.
