Yesterday I left a voice mail with two different physios. One of them called me back at 5. The other hasn't called back yet (I wonder how anyone can hope to stay in business if they can't even be bothered to answer calls from prospective customers). Went to see her this morning.
The good news is that I can expect to recover enough to be able to participate in my HM on the 19th October. Yay!!!
The bad news is that I mustn't run at all until I see her again next Monday. On Monday we'll talk about gentle jogging. I also mustn't swim breast stroke due to the kicks with the legs, and the last time I tried front crawl (30 years ago) I felt like I was drowning. So no swimming. No exercise cycling, but maybe a gentle, relaxing, short cycle trip on Saturday, but nothing like spinning. So while I will probably get to the starting line, she expects that I *will* be losing fitness, and might not be able to run the whole way.
I'm optimistic though. If I can be get to the start line, and if I can jog gently, then I shall be jogging gently for as long as it takes on the 19th!
Happy running all
