Ooooh yeah I'm back out there, 1st recovery run done yippee.

Physio said "Do a short run, take it slow, keep it flat and good luck"

Well I stuck to her instructions - I didn't have any option than to do just that. It was hard going, it was cold, I forgot to take my asthma inhalers before leaving too. So result was I puffed and panted my short run but damn it was good to get back out there. The next one will be better hopefully and so far so good no ankle/leg pain.

Well done Oldgirl.

I know you won't but don't get carried away and overdo it, it's too easy to do - as we all know.

Keep my fingers crossed that the bad times are over for you.

No your right Annie I won't over do it, the Aberdonian in me won't want to spend any more money than I have to on physio, would much sooner buy some new running kit :) As you get older there is a tendency to think time is running out and you just have to get back out there but its foolish to do too much too soon and undo all the good your treatment has done.

Don't think the link to Garmin worked first time, will try again.
