The training was getting more difficult for the legs after the 25k Sunday week. On Wednesday when I ran 10k it was a real struggle to get through that amount as my leg/hip hurt so much.
Went for my first run yesterday since Wednesday and only lasted 1k as the leg hurt so much.
Anyway, this morning I went off to the Sports Doc who worked out that I have hurt the bursa that is close to the hip on my ITB. Yes the dreaded ITB.
Took the quick option and had an x-ray and then a cortisone injection into the bursa. Not painful at all as long as you don't look at the needle. I was a bit pale the Doc said.
Have some anti-inflams to take and need to see a physio this week for a pummel and I will be right to have a run on Thursday and then do the Marathon. This Doc worked with the Wallabies so he knows a bit about sports injuries.
