I'm really sorry to hear that, Minni. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long for the op. I was going to post a few made-up medical sounding words, in the hope that it might help. But it seems MsE beat me to it.
Looking forward to seeing you at Abingdon, Ms Acetabular. We'll each have a new person to bore with our tales of Achilles injuries. How thrilling.
OGL - I'm so confident of this one that I've even pre-paid for my accommodation in Abingdon. It finally dawned on me that I'm unable to run on consecutive days. So I devised a cunning plan which entails only running on, er, alternative days. Or even on every 3rd day if I fear my bones are crumbling. Woefully inadequate for marathon training, of course. But it increases the likelihood of making it to the start line. Enjoy your parkrun tomorrow.
