Hi guys - I'm up in the middle of the night as I can't sleep, had set my alarm for 3.30 am anyway as I am going to the Gold Coast, Australia this morning for a few days holiday with my 6 year old grand daughter and my daughter. Should be fun - first time on a plane for my gdaughter, so hope she was able to sleep.
I went to get the results from my MRI scan from the surgeon yesterday, and it seems I now have a meniscus tear in the same leg that I had the burst baker cyst and the honeycomb fracture of the tibia!
I ran for so many years without any injuries, but these last months have been a pain in the leg
It will be at least a month before I get any surgery done, then my surgeon said I will have to exercise smarter!
When I first saw her she said she didn't see me doing any more half marathons or marathons, but I guess we will wait and see. I certainly will be doing everything she asks of me.
Ceal - loved your report and now you have another event to train for. Exciting stuff!
Tracey - congrats on the half - well done!
Columba - you seem to be doing quite a bit of gadding about!
Welsh Poppy - 11 mile run sounds great to me!
Torque Steer - I'd be very happy with those stats!
Mick - still doing some great work in the gym!
Graham - 7.10 minute miles - you are doing it mate!
W60 - yes be happy you can still run.
Forgot to say I am still doing my swimming lessons, and it seems you can't teach an old dog new tricks
