Bad luck Slag ... I tore mine about 8 years ago now and still suffer, you can manage it but you need to be very strict with yourself but its by no means the end of the road

Bad luck Slag - but i've knackered my left ankle - maybe we could enter as a three-legged race??

06/11/2012 at 09:52

i've knackered my left knee too......

06/11/2012 at 10:19

I tore a calf in preparation for my first IM.  You can work around it and focus on the other elements but you must do your stretches etc.  Assuming you've seen someone about this, Slag, and that they have given you exercises to make it better?

Nothing but a couple of swims for me this week ... Have kept my foot strapped up and barely walked anywhere ... Was killing me again yesterday but seems much much better today . Seeing a sports physio at weekend for an opinion though. Swellings gone down a fair bit today as well so may not be anything too serious after all. May still be on for that podium finish

Hope the physio has some good news for you Slag!

Out of interest...What's the furthest u boys will swim in the pool ? I did 100 lengths 2500m on weds and was bored out my mind.

Can't bear the thought of doing up to 3800m in the pool!!
