Thanks brer - made appointment with GP for next Thursday, although I'm still hopeful that it might have improved by then - I understand bruised bones can take a while to heal. If it's no better by next Thursday I'll ask the GP (who I know has done a few races, so I'm hoping he'll be sympathetic!) to just refer me - I've got BUPA cover through work, so hopefully that will speed things up if needs be. No plans/targets until I'm 100%, although one of my goals next year were the World trail champs which are being held down the road from me in Betws-y-Coed
brer - if I could run I would, although would have been mindful (& respectful) that if I had have been able to run but nowhere near my best it would not have been fair on the team and, in particular, the reserve(s) who, like me, would have done anything to wear the red vest!?
