Just back from A&E, definite sf on the shin, could even see it on x-ray. Oh well, was going to take 6 weeks off anyway. Will now take it easy and build up for Abingdon in October......oh yes and Snowdonia the week after .
Unfortunately the tracker was correct and I recorded my 1st DNF on my 10th Comrades. With the build up I've had this year I knew I would need the perfect run to get through to the finish, and it was far from that!! From being told I had a stress fracture on Friday morning, on to that wonderful heat and the berg wind, and then to cap it off I sprayed water over me well enough to soak my shoes resulting in golf ball size blisters on my feet. Made the sensible decision to bail at Camperdown and headed home in time to watch the finish on tv. It was not to be for me this year. but I will be back next year AND WILL GET MY GREEN NUMBER.
