officially out of alpine.
got a blood plasma/PRP injection to the left hammy on thursday and realistically doesnt leave enough time to recover.
from what i am told its 1 week completely off 1 week gentle (so no alpine training run next weekend) then nothing major for 6 weeks.
so its simply silly to commit even to the 100km.

will be interested in the ultrasound report when i see it but the PRP injection dude seemed somewhat excited about the appearance of my hammy tendon and mentioned something about fluid and said 'thats where the money is' and he wasnt looking at my wallet.
i was more focused on the big needle he was about to stick in there to pay complete attention.

regardless the PRP is something obvious to try and certainly the hip surgeon thinks its hammy tendinopathy not bursitis.

ran a fair bit the week before.
still fine running, not sitting.
ran 5 days in a row from memory including a slowish 2.24 MGTT on tired legs.
still running well, will get back into it shortly.
no long stuff though.

I'm contemplating the blood plasma thingy for my hip. But have been trying not to think about the needle, thanks ;-)

Seriously I'll be interested to hear your thoughts about it.

Sorry to hear you had to pull the pin on alpine Dave. All the best for a speedy recovery.
