How's it going folks? I've not been on for a while as I've been busy out on my mountain bike most of the summer...not sure if you remember my horrendously bruised rear thigh from my hamstring tear in May? Well, the hamstring tear has been healing nicely and I've been slowly building up the running mileage up to 9 miles and mixing it with the biking.
That's come to an abrupt halt as I had a crash on my bike on Saturday and managed to dislocate my ankle and break it in 3 places! That'll teach me to multi task! I had a dramatic helicopter ambulance to hospital, my ankle popped back in (while awake) and straight down to theatre. My ankle is pinned together and I've got a cast on for the next 6 weeks with a further op to follow. Bugger!
So that's 45 years with no injuries at all and now 3 biggies in 10 months!
Hey everybody, just checking in to update (bore) you with my hamstring recovery. I managed 3 short runs last week and can increase the mileage week by week. Hoping to be ready for my local mountain half marathon at the end of September. Strangely, I’ve not really missed running too much cos I rediscovered my cycling legs and have been out on my MTB loads.
So what’s been happening? I haven’t had time to check back and the last time I was on here I think Booky and LFR were about to do their ultras. How did you get on girls? I have I missed much?
Cheers LFR. I had a quick Google of your race and it’s not held under FRA rules. I’m sure you’ll do brilliantly – good luck! TT is ace! I love it. It’s amazing how close you can get to the bikes when they’re racing. Very exciting.
Physio says my hammy tear is healing very nicely, but still no proper running until another two weeks or so – patience, patience I’ve knocked the hyperbaric chamber on the head as it was disagreeing with my ears and making me feels very queasy afterwards
