The Damned injury couch


I seem to be having a run of injuries just now!!

I tweaked a hamstring about a fortnight ago just as I was getting back to running decent distances again. I have rested up and ventured out yesterday for a bit light jogging.

Around 3 minutes in the same leg went again!! It looks as if I may be out of action for some time.

So so frustrating!!!!!

Sorry. Moan over.

  • You poor thing. Hope you get better soon and you can get your exercise in other ways. Very frustrating๐Ÿ˜ฅ

  • Think it will be dog walking and perhaps some swimming JSS

  • Very frustrating - here's hoping that with rest (and ice) you are back out there soon.

  • Thanks Sandra. Been using so much recently IHave run out of ice. Might try ice lollies next :)

  • That's a real bummer sorry to hear you are out injured

    Have you seen a go or physio?

    Might be worth a visit as it hasn't healed

  • I think I am susceptible to the injury Rob. Had lots of physio in my football days and it eventually put paid to things. Thats was when I did bursts of sprinting tho'.

    This was at slow pace so might be worth another visit

  • Defo worth a visit , have to say mine was very good and very supportive .

    If there is an underlying problem they will find it and be able to advise best course of action :)

  • Oh bad news R56. The old IC claims yet another victim! :(

    Is it possible for you to see a physio. I've found with my injuries, that recovery definitely speeds up with treatment. In the meantime, I'm sure IrishPrincess will be glad of the company on the IC. Hope you're feeling better soon :)

  • Seems the couch is getting a little crowded AM. Might need some treatment before I get going again

  • Moan away. I'm stuck on the IC with shin splints. Doing me heed in!!!!! I feel your pain!!!!!!! Xx

  • Awwww. Budge up then :D

  • Pass the foam roller then! ;)

  • Didn't realise you were still suffering, Toonie. Such bad luck! Hope you're on the mend very soon. :)

  • Me too. Seems to be dragging on but probably my own fault as I pushed it too soon :( xx

  • Oooh noooo ! Come in Runner 56 !

    Hope your stretch on the IC isn't too long . There's some lovely people on there though, that you can pass the time with and bump your gums ! :-)

    Hope you feel better soon xxx

    Aye the nooo ! :-) xxx

  • Getting busy here PP.

    Hope to be back soon but I fear it could be 3-4 weeks with this one

  • Oh dear , still when you get back out there , the weather should be improving , and the clocks will be going back - Woo Hoo ! :-)

    Good Luck and please let us know how youre getting on xxx

  • Every cloud....etc :)

  • Sorry you're on the IC, r56. It might be worth seeing someone about it, though, if it keeps recurring. I hope you can get back out there soon.

    Meanwhile, may I join you on the IC? My back has gone again :( - too much walking in the wrong shoes.

  • Sorry to hear that Anne. I am sure we can find a very temporary space for you on the IC
