I echo Poacher's congrats and commiserations on yesterday's VMLM results. PPP in particular must be pleased to have sorted out last year's unfinished business.
I learned on Friday that Avondale Sports Centre has an Alter-G 'zero gravity' treadmill and I gave it a go yesterday. Averaged 8mm for 35 minutes, peaking a bit higher. Not a true test but a good sign. Back to the stationary bike tonight, another Alter G session tomorrow and then if everything feels good, 3 miles on the road Wednesday. Not out of the woods yet, but I am getting on the plane on Friday with every intention of turning up at the start next Monday.
Thanks, PPP. That's exactly what I plan to do. I have my endurance base for Boston, so I don't feel compelled to get any more runs done until it is sorted. My physio session was good and I'm cautiously optimistic if I can avoid my tendency to do something stupid, I'll get this turned around in time.
SW - walking OK and rode a stationery bike in the gym last night without pain. Physio midday today. With just under 2 weeks to go, I'm cautiously optimistic I'll be able to run with a couple of days to spare.
