I've run three times this week - a 5, a 7 and a 6.5K. I can't honestly say I arrived home full of the joys of spring because my bloody right leg is causing me grief. So much so that I've hailed Mr Physio Man to come and inspect said offending limb. I dunno what it is, but I keep getting uncomfortable muscle ache in the groin, then it shifts to my shin, then sometimes it's my knee. GRRRR!!!!! Bloody right leg is a pain in the ayaaasss!!! My left leg is as good as gold though. I never have problems with that.
I've got relatively newish shoes - and they're definitely not worn out yet. I've had my gait analysed a few times. I've seen a bloomin' podiatrist (ages ago) who levelled me up as I was kind of lop sided owing to one leg being shorter than the other. Only a few mill, but enough for her to go "Jaysus Christ! Yer all over the feckin' place wit yer walking! Git up on dat feckin' couch a wee minute" (she was Chinese. Nice lady.) That visit cost me a hefty £150! Unbelievable.
So what could it be? I'm hoping my chap can find out for me on Wednesday afternoon. I mean, I CAN run but am aware of the discomfort all the time and it's taking the gloss of my performance - if you know what I mean. Sometimes it's "WHOOOAHH!" painful, other times it's "Mmmmm....ooh!" So essentially I never know what kind of jip I'm gonna get when I venture outside.
On a good note though, I'm looking massively forward to the spring arriving. The air will be warmer and the smells of springtime will be filling the air. Cannee wait!
Mrs Dan is getting fed up with me moaning about it. But I am one of those people who prefers all to be well with everything! If I hear a noise from the car when I'm driving I'm all "Oooh! What's that banging noise?" Mrs Dan always puts my mind at rest. "It's your door keys rattling in your pocket, you great ****ker!" Or similar such words. But when I'm running I like to be 100% pain free otherwise I worry about doing damage.
So hopefully once Mr Physio gives me some deep tissue relief on my groin (Now now! Don't be disgusting please), I'm hoping that will be the end of my problems.
Hope you all had some super duper runs today. i was thinking about every single one of you. Honestly, I was!
More soon from,
