Well done Superman. I often see your comments over at Raworthontherun! You certainly had my vote. So too did Tigger - shame you didn't get through. You've been nothing but sunshine and optimism on the forums! Good luck with future racing.
My question relates to an injury, but it may be similar to Sam's 'Stevelovesbacon' Asics 26.2 candidate from last year.
Two weeks ago during the perfect London marathon training campaign, I fell on the road and landed heavily on my knee. I've iced, rested and used anti-inflammatory tablets and creams since, but still the pain is there. Nothing feels like ligament or muscle damage and I seem to remember Steve bruised his bone. I'm wondering whether something like this is possible? Nothing clicks or locks or gives way but there is a definite ache (particularly going down slopes and stairs). Do you think with 4 weeks to go London is still on the cards? I can walk and gentle run on it but I know it's a long way from 100%.
I'm seeing a sports physio next week, but it's more the mental disappointment at possibly having to withdraw that's harder to bear than the knee pain.
Abi (PS great article the other week about how swimming pools would be so much better with advisors pool-side. Nail on the head!)
