Stiationary - I had just come to a stop in stationary traffic and had unclipped my left foot but then leant to the right. I had no time to correct my mistake and so my right foot wa still attached. I really tried hard to detach my foot by twisting it but just couldn't manage it. Whilst horizontal in the middle of Hall St with cars behind me it took another 20 or 30 seconds to throw off the bike. All the time I was constantly twisting the knee, hence the problem.
Injury strikes and I am out. Knee inflamed, very painful and burning up following a fall off my stationary bike last night - forgot I had clip in pedals! On ibuprofen to reduce the swelling. Hope you all enjoy the day - gutted. On the plus side I will be in London for 3 days next week so all being well I intend to cover the whole course.
TB - a top 10 will be a great result for me on Saturday. There are some top runners in the field including a guy who finished 150 places higher than NI at the nationals!
