    It is brutally unfair. One of the most kindhearted people you could meet. The family are taking donations for Headway charity in his name, they were a lifeline when the family were trying to come to grips with what Andrew was dealing with after the accident.

    I have put a link to the charity below

    Is it one of the 'stop-2-go' movements?

    I've been following this thread for a while now, and using the advice that has been shared to see some real improvements in my running, so thanks for sharing experience! However i managed to do myself an injury last friday at the end of a long interval session. I've been trawling run forums and not managed to find anything that resembles what i have done, so hoped i could get an answer here before spending money to speak to someone

    Near the end of the session, the outside of my left foot developed an intense pain every step. since then anytime i walk any distance the pain comes back quite fast. doesn't hurt sitting down, doesn't hurt walking on my tip toes, only the action of heel to toe. always the lower outside of the foot in pain. And the pain is strong enough i cant continue walking without limping.

    Any ideas? As i am not very clever i didn't stop when it started to hurt and didn't ice it afterwards.

    Sorry, radial front doesn't do it for me, had promax hubs before though and this is a great price for them,

    Cost was £2000 total, had surgery on Saturday morning, was back at work on Tuesday. (bank holiday weekend)

    Everyone's recovery is different but below is my experience.

    The day of the surgery (after its complete) you wear protective contact lenses and have eye drops every hour, you can see but its like everything is underwater. you wear sunglasses all day and try and stay in the dark with eyes closed if possible.

    Next day you go back in for a check up in the morning, they take the lenses out and you can see pretty good, but there is still some blurriness. you can start to look at phone screens etc. at night the glare from lights is pretty bad. Eyedrops every 2 hours or so.

    3rd day vision is really picking up and any blur is small. felt i could go to work if i had too. eyedrops still recomended every 2 hours (prevent infection etc)

    After one week i had my second check up, vision was already better than 2020, still some glare at night but assured it will diminish over time.

    Now one month in vision is great, i don't suffer dryness or any discomfort, in fact the whole process was painless and without dryness. glare at night is still there but not bad, just noticeable.

    Downsides are, after the surgery for a week you cant touch/rub eyes, its pretty sore if you do. this isnt really a problem but years of going to bed and taking glasses of means i kept punching my sore eyes when i went to bed trying to take of glasses that didnt exist.

    I also keep pushing glasses that dont exist up my nose and looking like a weirdo in the process.

    But life without glasses is awesome.

    I had mine done a few weeks ago by Accuvision in London. I had consultations with optical express and optimax beforehand, but they were very pushy and tried to scaremonger you into thinking any laser other than theirs would lead to blindness.

    Whole process was a lot less scary than i thought it would be, and the recovery is pretty quick (i was a fairly easy case -2.75 on both eyes). I would be happy to recommend Accuvision, but more importantly i recommend visiting as many clinics as possible until you find one you like. and do your research before the consultations.
