I have just been told that I have a major medial meniscus tear and am never allowed to run on the road/tarmac etc again, if at all. I am starting physio which I will do relentlessly as they say I might avoid surgery. They say I might be able to run on grass in the future. Meanwhile, I am losing all the fitness I gained since finishing the plan in April. I was running 30 minutes plus, 3 times a week (mananged a 36 min 5k!) and feel lost without it. Seriously upset - any words of encouragemnt might help. Thanks. P.S . Am in tears just typing this.
