Thanks Tom. Perhaps I'll do a bit of both, cancel some events but continue to train as long as it feels OK. I've had a few DNFs over the last two years as a result of this injury but at least it's a relief to know exactly what's causing it now.
I've just been diagnosed with a torn medial meniscus by MRI (original injury February 2010). I'm now waiting to see a specialist. I am a marathon/ultra runner and ran a trail marathon last weekend without immediate symptoms but now have soreness again. Do I stop running until I've seen the specialist or do I carry on training and participating? I've had intermittent problems since the original injury but it clearly hasn't healed.
Pulled out at CP2. Some paths were very slippery after downpour and I had problems with leg injury. I only know of three other runners stopping at CP2 or before. When we left CP3 at 05:45 this morning 13 runners had already gone through. Good luck to everyone and hope rain holds off. Thanks to all CP staff for excellent service.
