Day 16 Post Jab. That relentless iliopsoas tendon pain has gone from a major to a minor 😊With 12 days until I leave it couldn’t have settled at a better time. I’m so relieved !!! 😊 From a diagnostic point it’s been a success 🙃4 cautious runs left and my trainings complete . 🙏🤞❤️. #diagnostic#iliopsoas#tha#thr#marathon#training#running#personaltrainer#believeinyourself#usa#newhampshire#canada#vancouver#❤️

Day11 Post Jab The sun came out from behind the clouds .😊 Today was the second time in my life I’ve felt true fear. Every step I thought I’d puke with anxiety . My tendon held fast, weak, tender but held for the 10km. I’m so happy 17 days until I leave and I can run all be it slowly 😃. #iliopsoas#marathon#running#

Day 4 Post peripsoas injection.Its not often I’m not smiling but Waiting ... I’m not good at. I’m definitely over it.🙃The challenges in recovery from a complicated THA come in many forms and vary with each bump. This bump brings a fear of losing my fitness, the inactivity is a total mind ...k😞Somedays you have to dig deep to find a positive from your injury . Thank goodness for coffee and wine ❤️#iliopsoasinjection#diagnostic#totalhiparthroplasty#totalhipreplacement#recovery#marathon#runner#doingit#gym#strengthtraining#coffee#wine

Ceramic on ceramic prosthesis taken on a 45 yesterday. The impingement area is the top of the acetabulum cup where the iliopsoas is catching on flexion/ extension.The medication is affecting my femoral nerve, a six hour block injected 2.30 pm yesterday and my right leg ( anterior) is still numb to my ankle. ☹️ At least it’s miserable outside so a good day to wrapped in a blanket in front of the fire . ( but I’d rather be running 😥) #iliopsoasimpingement#tenotomy#acetabulum#thr#femoralnerve#recovery#challenge#running#whatnow#😥

After 11 years of being told by specialists upon examination , it’s highly unusual the words no longer fazed me . However hearing it today has made me realise shit creek really does exist and I may well be drowning in it ☹️The thought of having my hip reopened for the 5th time really makes me🤮😥I wish I could have a normal recovery . For anyone about to have a diagnostic iliopsoas shot - whilst the 5 inch needle is a bit off putting it’s not really painful, distinctly uncomfortable and definitely weird but it’s tolerable 🙄#iliopsoas#steroid#overit#tha#thr#letmerun#nightmare#hipreplacement

This amazing, gentle man Carlos Wagner washed up in a storm on the beach at home in February 2015 . He was from Oberammergau Germany . (Kayaking around the South Island.) It was in the early days of Mums diagnosis/ illness he very quickly became part of our family. The empathy he showed towards mum was remarkable. Sadly he was to die months later with cancer himself. It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since that sad phone call. I remember him with love and gratitude he made something unbearable bearable. The stormy southern seas have landed some treasures on the beach over the years but none compare to Carlos 😊. Dearest Carlos may you be kayaking the briny in heaven with that beautiful smile on your face . ❤️My love and thoughts are with your family on this 2nd anniversary of your passing.

Almost 3 months to the day after seeing surgeon (private care) the paper work is now complete for an urgent diagnostic fluro guided iliopsoas injection! 🤐If it works, maybe a few pain free weeks of travel (a new acetabular cup or tendon release surgery upon my return) If it reacts it will stuff things completely😬Im so worried it will effect my running. At least it’s a beautiful spring day 😊❤️ and my shoes fit 😁#hipreplacement#recovery#iliopsoas#runner#motivation#marathon#hipster#fuckit#overit#notsobravenow#allbirds#socomfy#spring#blossom#❤️❤️❤️

Target 86 km 😊#marathon#training#runnning#resistancetraining#wind#runningbuddy#Feeling it😳❤️

This morning we put 6 weeks of training to the test . On a mix of very hilly freshly graded gravel roads and seal. Really pleased with time. A half in 2.14,(looking forward to trying a flat route ).There were some hills that made me wish I had filled my pack with wine, and others that made me wish I hadn’t got out of bed but really I can’t believe how good it feels. What a difference 6 weeks and a trainer can make.Sunburnt in September. (what the hell ?😳) ❤️#marathontraining#hipreplacement#strengthtraining#lovetorun#goalachieved#happy#endorphins#timeforacider#hokaoneone#lululemon#personaltrainer#❤️
