I read about Shelford before selbs. Nuts! Glad to hear things are coming around for you. I believe Edinburgh is almost full btw, so you will need to make your mind up quickly.
Cheers for the hot melt glue info CW. Fingers crossed your niggles continue to dissipate!
Nice repping Wardi.
Good luck for the 10k HR.
One cheek firmly planted on the bench here. I stumbled on a bumpy unlit pavement whilst running home Tuesday night, and in the process of stopping myself falling have damaged my knee - not dissimilar to when you see somebody land awkwardly after a jump.
It is apparently a partial tear to the quadriceps tendon. Like muscles it can range from a strain (slight tear) to a complete rupture (which I obviously don't have). Waiting to hear from the doc with next steps and what, if anything, I can do in the meantime, but hopefully it is just at the strain end of things.
It sounds like it could be anything from a few more days to several weeks. I'm hoping the pain is just because anything hurts if it's torn, even if it's only a small bit. Luckily I started treating it straight away (ultrasound as well as the usual RICE protocol) which will hopefully have sped things up.
At the moment, simply lifting my leg or bending the knee though (obviously) painful is manageable, which is apparently a good sign, so fingers crossed!!!
