So I have been really pleased with my progress recently and have felt so confident that I am able to get the marathons under my belt. I have had a lot of support from family, friends, my training partner Darren and there has been a warm response from work with colleagues and all sorts. Overwhelming but in a good way.
But Sunday came and disaster struck. I twisted my knee ever so slightly, but with lots of rest when I can, ice and elevation it isn’t getting better.
So I have booked an appointment at the nearby Sports Injury Clinic to get them to help with getting fighting fit, strengthening the knee and back to running in no time. They are amazing and rather than wait for a referral and/or for the knee to get better I would prefer to go sooner rather than later and to be fair it hasn’t been long but I am really itching to get back out there and clocking up those miles in my legs. In the meantime I have been getting on with the 30 Day Ab Challenge and have been pushing myself there with extra workouts, focusing my frustration of not being able to run on my abdominal muscles. [Insert Sparta style grunt here.]
I really am a glutton for punishment, eh?
