Oh man i needed that run. It felt SO good to be running. Even on a treadmill! I knew all day tonight was a running night, i haven't had a good run in ages it seemed. I don't overly enjoy the treadmill but use the programmes to try to keep it interesting and avoid just running an easy pace. Tonight i set up a 45 minute speed interval run (7.1km covered) and thoroughly enjoyed it, time didn't drag and by the end i wanted more. So i set up a 15 minute hard hill work out (1.87km covered). I actually could have run faster but was unsure at the beginning if i'd make it so kept it on level 7. The last section of flat i increased my speed to fast though, i like a little sprint to the finish line. I still feel good from it. I then did about 100 sit up type things, maybe more.
The Hip News:
I have my x-ray request right here. Been talking it over with my mum, trying to make sure i receive no unnecessary radiation - my mum is a radiographer - by ensuring that i get the right one. I was a bit blunt with my GP. I told him i had asked a consultant i worked with and what he had recommended. I gave him a brief history but basically my GP did what i told him to do. Namely writing a x-ray request and a referral to Mr Kiely. This meant though that the x-ray referral is vague. I did ask another consultant and he also agreed that it would be visible on an AP x-ray so i'm confident i can go ahead and have this done. If it proves i have what is suspected though, i will need a CT scan :( more radiation, that stuff isn't to be taken lightly.
