Not the birthday present I wanted

I'm sorry to say that my 55th birthday present today is not to graduate on it (which was my aim a couple of weeks ago) but to be told by my GP that I have damaged/torn my left medial meniscus (cartilage on the inside of the knee). In my twenties I did this to my right knee so knew deep down it was not just messing about with ligaments.

I'm now waiting to be booked to see a physio prior to probably having surgery to repair it so sadly I am off the programme for the forseeable future. I will be back as soon as I can.

To say I am gutted is a bit of an understatement as I have really got the bug for this running lark big time.

Good luck to the rest of you and enjoy the challenge.
