After not being able to run in Sundays race I felt compelled to write a few words, firstly to congratulate you all on your fantastic achievements!
I felt really emotional reading all of your blogs as although i dont know you personally I was bursting with pride at your achuevements and that all your hard work has paid off.
Its also inspired me to finally stop feeling sorry for myself about the fact my knee doesnt seem to want to play ball and do something about it.
Ive contacted a Sports Therapist who speicalises in knees, he worked for the Welsh rugby team and also for a Ski team in France and he thinks he can help me.
I'm determined to kick this problem and get out running again, especially now the summer months are coming i'm itching to get out for a run. Ive been keeping up with my cardio, lots of low impact cycling, rowing, spin classes, weights and pilates.
So my VLM dream is definately not over and I really hope to be back on here later in the year to say ive started my training once again.
I hope all of you who took part are basking in your achievement and having a well earned rest.
Ciao for now : )
