Thanks for the replies. I have downloaded a variety of data sheets from different clinics. One in particular says light cycling , jogging 7-10 days. Others say 6-8 weeks. I know I had a decent sized portion of medial meniscus out. Havent spoken to the surgeon but I dont think he did anything else. Gonna try 30 minutes gentle on an exercise bike tonight. I will go carefully and see how it reacts. I wont to attempt to run round a field in 7 more days. Cheers. Peter
I would get someone to watch you running. I have had 6 pairs of Lunaglides and really like them. Always get them online and discounted by going for a previous batch. Currently 6 I think so have just bought some Lunaglide 5s. Till you know I would try some on. I would do regular short runs with some hills and some fartlek. Dont worry too much about distance. Give it time.
I ran the Brighton Marathon a couple of years ago then London the weekend after. I was 45 at the time and did 3.14. Done a few different ones such as Jersey , Loch Ness etc but would definately recommend Brighton. Bit of an odd course. The start is quite awkward with a left turn steep climb and descent but I was running at my chosen pace inside a couple of minutes. Out of interest I went with the wife. We had chicken noodles for lunch at the end of the pier and for dinner I had loaded potato skins and a chilli. This is the best I have ever felt running a marathon and would recommend to everyone. There is a steep long climb past the Marina but you get to go back down it.
Injured my knee fishing , yes fishing 13 months ago when the platform I was stood on collapsed. This resulted in tibia head bruising and a torn medial meniscus which was only discovered 7 weeks ago. Basically had surgery on Thursday and had the damaged part of my medial meniscus removed. Currently off work. I have stopped taking painkillers and I am doing basic exercises. There is some swelling but not bad and next to no bruising. I am in the Berlin marathon. I managed to train fairly well considering the state of my knee and have done a 19 mile run and also ran 46 miles 2 weeks before surgery. I hope to be jogging lightly at 2 weeks after a few days of gentle cycling on an exercise bike. Is this to soon? I am not going to push through pain but the damage I expected doesnt seem to bad.
