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, hope knee improves quickly, how gutting, but great timing for xmas playing!!
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!
I recon jen and her bars should come along and be ....... Head of support, haha cheer leader!!
