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.
