Warning – may contain whingeing

There are worse things in life than not being able to run but I am struggling to think of any.

There are worse things in life than training for an event for months, with many early morning Sunday runs, deep mud, huge hills to get within two weeks and to have to pull out, yes I am sure there is but I am so annoyed I am struggling to think of any.

Monday I ran 1 whole mile. The ankle felt odd but managed it.

Wednesday I tried for 2 miles. Not good.

Friday I have an appointment at a sports clinic. Sundays event participation hinges on that, until then I will rest it, elevate it, ice it, compress it, stretch it oh and CURSE it.

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    just because there are bigger problems out there doesn’t mean that yours doesn’t count. it’s sooooo completely frustrating to work towards something and then have that something dashed in the 11th hour. good luck with the compression, ice, rest, etc. Fingers are crossed for Sunday.

  4. Gosh! I hope you get a good report from the sports clinic. I would be extremely upset too. Hang in there dear Shaz xxx
