Wowsers. Any good news? Sounds like a conversation that might have ended with "so am I ok to run the xc at the weekend then?"

Ha! The good news is that there is only a minimal tear in my quad and I'm good to do karate!!!

When you say leg length difference, were you measured properly?

I was told that previously and it turned out the legs are exactly the same length and it was a twist & rotation in the pelvis (SI joint issue) which made it seem as though one leg shorter than other.

SI was clunk clicked into position and **touch wood** no issues in a long time.

Ya I'm sceptical about the leg length discrepancy. The only way to measure it accurately is by X-ray/MRI and that wasn't done. However, at least 4 physios/PT/quacks have told me the same thing and I do think there is some instability in my left hip since 2014. When I lie straight on the floor and raise my left leg up so that it's perpendicular to my body, there is always a clunking sound which doesn't happen on the opposite side. And no matter how careful I am, I can't keep it right. I was running 80km/wk for ages before I did the mountain marathon in 2014 and it first got injured! So I think it might be worth trying the heel raisers. It's 3mm and only costs €7 and if nothing else it'll be an interesting experiment. I suspect it'll make little or no difference but as its so cheap and I'm an eternal optimist I might as well give it a try!

Even cheaper option. Cut beer mats to the shape of the shoe insole and pop under the liner ;)

Ya a bit thanks. Have managed 3 very small runs this week. Hopefully can build from there
