Back on the IC after Parkrun ๐Ÿ™„

Got up this morning to blizzard conditions ๐ŸŒจ

Didnโ€™t put me off going out though, so donned my shorts, vest and jacket....and shoes of course...and set off in a howling bitter wind!

I was really up for this, and felt good as I made my round the course through the mud and numerous unavoidable puddles/ponds ๐Ÿ˜–

Then at 4.3k I felt the hamstring in my right leg pop, ouch that hurt, forcing me to hobble the rest of the way. Another session on the IC, 10days after recovering from my last injury....non running related! ๐Ÿคฌ

Happy running guys, have a good weekend whatever youโ€™re doing ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Oh no! That is really bad luck. Hopefully with a bit of rest you will be back to normal soon. Take it easy TedG I want to read about your HM success, so you need to get well again ๐Ÿ™‚

I recovered from a 2wk shin injury 10days ago then did 27k in the last 10days....couldโ€™ve been too much after the lay off! ๐Ÿ™„

Sorry to hear that ! How annoying to say the least. Iโ€™ll sit on the couch with you while Iโ€™m recovering too ๐ŸŒท

Oh Ted. ๐Ÿ™ If I were you, I would get myself to a physio. Hamstring injuries are tricky (trust me). Take care and rest! x

Oh no! Sorry to hear this Ted, not having much luck recently. I'm on the IC too with piriformis syndrome. Not much fun eh. Keep us posted on how things are and fingers crossed it's better soon. No rushing it though :)

I had to google your ailment fpf, painful if itโ€™s anything like sciatica ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Iโ€™m making an appointment to see a sports physio, hope they can sort it ๐Ÿ˜Š

Trouble is, when you get to a certain age, you donโ€™t mend too quickly ๐Ÿ™„

Get better soon ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ
