Barefoot Teresa - Nice run!! Great job of getting it done!!👍👍😊
It's good to see that, despite your problems you are still able to persevere. I'm still in extreme pain when I attempt to walk not even to talk of running. I've just somehow got to get through this. My son is here from Dubai and I entered us long ago into a 85 km trail run in two weeks time so I just have to get going again. I'll have to take painkillers and anti-inflammatories on the run. I think this is going to be my swansong but there's no way I going to miss it. The first day is 24 kms along the beach to the venue which can't be reached by car. I should be able to walk / jog this stretch. The second day is 50 kms in gorges and rivers. The 3rd day a short jog somewhere. Just magnificent.
Way to get it done, whatever it takes! Like Timothy said, that is commitment. And strong will. And amazing determination!
Nice job getting it done!!
Thank you, Timothy Mungania and Appalachian Runner! Even though still humid and hot last evening, the humidity and heat were easier to bear when the sun went down.
Johan Kriel, I'm so sad for you! Chronic pain is much more difficult for a runner to deal with than other physiological issues that plague runners. When one has chronic pain, no strategy such as running a different time of day or running a slower pace can help. The pain is there no matter what. I'm glad you are going to run that race with your son as planned, despite the need for painkillers to get through the race. It sounds like a very special experience. I hope the race will not be your swan-song, though. I hope somehow, some way, you will find relief from your pain and continue to engage in this activity of running that you love so well! Be sure to post data and photos from your race so those of us who follow you can see what you experience. Just do what you have to, to finish this race successfully, then reassess your situation with your hip. Take care!
Thank you, Geri L and Stephanie Harvey! I ALWAYS appreciate your support and encouragement, so very much.
