Broken & Sore !
well I've not blogged in a while . The main reason being I have been very behind with my training due to numerous reasons. Started too late, illness etc etc.
My longest run has been 15 miles and reading everyone on here with their 20 milers etc. I've been embarassed to be honest.
Still with two weeks to go I have been doing a taper and on Tuesday went out for a gentle 3 miler . All was well just a little niggle in my right knee but nothing to really worry about. However at mile 2 bang - sharp pain from the back of my knee up my thigh. Ouch - tried to run through it but it was too painful I had to walk. Abandonded the run and walked the half mile to my sisters for a lift home.
Very painful that night and developed a limp yesterday. Booked the Physio he had a free appointment at 4pm. Managed to get out of work early and make the appointment. He was brilliant did some accupuncture ( first time I've had this ) and a massage. It seems I have a slight tear in my hamstring however he's confident with the excercises and another session next week I should be able to make the race. Not fast ( now I have an excuse for not going fast) but I should be able to make it around the course .
Got home told my husband the verdict he was pleased for me .Then I went to get changed . On my way back downstairs I slipped on the top step fell down the stairs and hit every one of them on the way down. Ouch !!
So today here I am battered and bruised feeling a little bit sorry for myself & feeling like I've done a round with Mike Tyson.
Hope your last weeks are going better than mine.
See you at the Red Start I'll be the one shuffling at the back.
