Couch to 5K

Saying a sad farewell to running

Thank you so much for all the support you guys gave me during my couch to 5k and beyond running days. It has been great. Unfortunately I developed bursitis/tendonitis in my right hip. Physio , scans and the rest showed that my right femur is a bit twisted and imbalanced. I've done Physio everyday since May to compensate but i am advised I will not be able to do more than a light jog. It has made me do more whole body exercise, and am enjoying the variety. Rowing, cycling (bum on seat) and swimming (crawl, once I have master it) will be the cardio I can do. I was really sad I could no longer run but am thinking positively about new ways to exercise and I am thankful for health and opportunity for new experiences. Enjoy and cherish your running days everyone and happy new year!

I'm sorry to hear that, but I admire your positive approach to finding other ways to be fit and healthy.

I enjoy cycling too - I hope you have a bike with plenty of "twiddly gears" to keep your hip happy & backside on saddle.

Good luck with all your varied exercise & all the best for 2018. 😃
