Well it was all going so well. 17k run np. Running in rain and cold np. Then I went on holiday. I would recommend Cortina if you like to ski in spectacular scenery with no crowds. Then on my second run down a lovely black run.... I fell over. No big issue I thought. Actually a calf muscle tear. Ouch. Got home, limping a bit. Physio was fantastic, said she would do her best etc. Yesterday she was super professional and said "well I think we could get this to the point where you could do the half marathon in March but I'm concerned that something might break at mile 10"
My thinking? She knows her job, dont be a muppet etc
So I called cancer care uk, and they were fantastic . I have cancelled Cambridge hm and will now do Richmond hm in September. Now feeling super positive despite not running atm.
My key message. ... well Kipchoges record is not under threat, I am 62 years old and want to keep running as long as possible AND I really want to do this.
Cant wait to get running again! Cheers vrbs
