Well rather sadly I need to be crossed off the starting line up for Saturday.
Most of you know that I've been having some heel trouble, well it was diagnosed as an Achilles insertional tendinitis problem, not helped by the shape of my heel bone itself, and also an inflamed Retrocalcaneal Bursa !
I've seen a consultant today who has dry needled the affected area in several places, and injected a long lasting anaesthetic in there with good results so far. I now have to rest for 48hrs, but no running for a week, and then a gentle build up to day 14. I can start biking after 48hrs though at least.
So as for Berlin, well what can I say, the dreaded curse of that event strikes again !! I'm not ruling out running it still, but may give myself more time and go for Chester. So all is not lost yet !
ES - wipe that smile off your face, just cos you'll pass me on Fetch !!
Minnie - I'm still trying to sort my sitter for Saturday but hoping to be there.
Firstly, thanks to you all for coming to share my birthday celebrations with us, we really enjoyed having everyone there. We cleared most of it away lastnight, didnt take long - if anyone has space in their Brown bin though give me a shout !! Who ever said runners can't drink a lot ?!! I'll leg you know when the next one is, we've enough alcohol here to sink a ship !!
I even managed a 10m run mid afternoon with JS - the last one in my 30's ! Thanks again JS.
