Malcs - I'm hoping I may get bitten by a radioactive cheetah or something during the surgery...

No date yet, have thought about cycling but no bike and I don't have access to a gym, knee's very tender today, so maybe running wasn't as successful as I thought! I've taken up the 100 press up challenge to give me something to focus on and am trying to add some swimming to my routine.

Yeah will definitely take it easy, Physio's doing nothing on my knees so thought I'd try and build strength through running a bit at a time, slowly slowly catch a monkey as they say!

Been referred to a knee specialist at last so hoping they can shed some light on it and give me something solid, need to up my excercise levels to shift the spare tire that's rapidly growing around my midriff!

Just noticed you're having a scan on your knee Steve, I hope it's nothing serious, I've missed a lot of the posts over the last few weeks.

Indy! Welcome back to the forums mate! Did you have a good Christmas and New Year?

Thanks! I see your training is going well, Had a great Christmas once I got out of work on Christmas Eve, but too tired to remember most of it! Oscar had a great time which was the important thing. I was working all through New Year so missed that too (managed to stay awake till 23:30!)

Feeling a bit worse unfortunately. Had a bit of a relapse yesterday. Spent most of the evening clamped to the radiator (yes, I am that pathetic).

Malcs, completely missed that you were suffering, hope you make a swift recovery.

Thanks, Seren, at the moment I can't do much of anything, but I'm thinking swimming is the way forward, I'm going to give it a go after Christmas.

Indy - really sorry to hear about your injury. How bad is the tear do you know? 

Good to hear that you're up for TR24. You have plenty of time to get fit for that.

Grinchy.....very sorry to hear about your injury. That's terrible news. How did you do it? Do you know how long you need to rest for? At least you have an excuse for being waited on hand and foot over the Xmas period!

Sorry to hear about your knee grinchy I would def say rest up, can take anything between a month to needing surgery depending on how bad it is. What symptoms do you have and have you had an MRI?

I did it initially a couple of months ago on a ten miler training for the Birmingham half marathon, about two weeks before the event. Foolishly I decided that failure wasn't an option and did it anyway which basically completely knackered it. Naively I thought it was just a bit of overuse and decided to rest it for a few weeks but upon running again for bootcamp, I then twisted it and it's got progressively worse. Prompting a trip to the physio.

I'm not sure how bad it is as such, Physio said to rest it completely then ease back in to training a little at a time, unfortunately my job involves a lot of lifting, bending and being constantly on my feet, coupled with 12 hour days because of Christmas so it's hindering it I think. But then I guess it can't be really serious if I can walk on it all day, albeit with some discomfort.

Not had a MRI yet, I'm going to give it a month then head back to the physio, I'm hoping with complete rest I'll be able to start training in a month or two, fingers crossed it's not bad enough to require surgery  Come what may I will be ready for the Thunder Run!

Just checked out the website for the Thunder Run, looks awesome, what a great idea. I would definitely be up for a crack at that.

Thanks Sarah, having never had an injury before I couldn't train through (and that includes things like cracked ribs and broken noses through taekwondo!) I feel a bit lost, I may have to move my marathon dreams for next year into the autumn season. This is a bit gutting as even out of the Target 26.2 process I'd hoped to share the journey, plus I'm probably going to put on at least a stone over Christmas now! Still, on the positive side it's a great excuse for doing very little on Christmas Day and I can spend some quality time with my boy... and his new toys

I've just noticed this thread's hit 2000 posts, impressive. Had a busy few days so I'm completely out of the loop again

Also the Physio's told me I've torn my meniscal cartilage in my knee and can't do any running which is a nice early Christmas present, also rules me out of going for the forum 6 place if anyone's got any experience with this I'd be grateful for any advice/tips.

Still at least I can keep myself busy with the 58 hours I'm scheduled to work over the next 5 days, hoorah for retail I suspect I shall be going dark till Christmas Day after this evening.

Q: how do you calm overexcited 3 year olds down at this time of year?

That's easy, just tell them you've cancelled Christmas. Problem solved...

Sounds good Santa, now, is that ??7k for the equipment or to use it! I'll keep an eye out for the photo's, looking forward to seeing your training plan too!

Going to sign off for a bit as struggling to concentrate on sports personality...
