gnr this weekend

I am due to run gnr this weekend however since last week I have experienced pain in my left hip, burning sensation even hurts lying on that side. I rested and haven't run over the weekend now walking with a limp and the pain is not subsiding. my last run was only 3 miles not exactly over exerting myself so dunno where this has come from any advice please

OSTEOARTHRITIS

Advice: See a doctor or a physiotherapist. Walking with a limp doesn't sound like a good starting point for running 13 miles.

Eek! That sounds horrible! I agree with Tomas, go and get some medical advice - do you know a good physio? Fingers crossed for you but if you don't make this HM, there will be others. Good luck.

You have my sympathy. I got up to 10 miles but then developed tendonitis, so I'm having to defer the GNR until next year, as at the moment walking is a bit painful, let alone running for 13.1 miles.

But I have a plan, once it's sorted - 10k in Jan and hopefully a hm in March. As Sandraj39 says, there will be others :-)

Agree with others try and see someone tomorrow morning- physio or osteopath would be best.

I am running it too and pulled up sharp yesterday with awful midback pain, had to abandon the run and get the bus home. After a lot of ringing around found an osteopath who has done various things, says it will be sore from that for another 24-48 hours but can then try another run. So I am sat here with a hot water bottle behind me and anxious about all the fundraising I have done. Luckily I can walk freely today so as the train and accommodation are booked will be getting to the finish line somehow. Good luck.

Sorry to hear this. Look on the bright side. Bursitis is treatable, ultimately. Osteoarthritis (as your tag) tends not to be. I've osteoarthritis in my knees. I ran the GNR on Sunday because they weren't playing up, but it does restrict the amount of running I can do. I've a very understanding GP who reckons that running won't make the arthritis any worse (but stopping running will because I'll end up putting weight on then).

I hope you've claimed your guaranteed entry for next year. I'll see you then!
