I don’t like Mondays

I particularly don’t like Mondays after a week off, going back to work was not pleasant this week, but then rarely is. However it was going to get worse!

Lunch time I had a physio appointment, more heat, more massage, more pain inflicted on my legs all to sort out a slight issue I have been having with my knee. Nothing major, just a niggle that wasn’t going away. It is fine when running only making itself known after a few miles and then nothing major and certainly not painful enough to stop running. Mr physio was pleased with my progress and only wanted to see me before the Grizzly to loosen off my legs. All good. Happy Shaz.

That night when getting out of the car, I twisted my knee, it hurt. I swore. I managed Metafit the next day, followed by five miles run in the evening. To be honest it wasn’t great on the run, not painful really just not comfortable but I did manage negative splits as it seemed to ease as the run went on.

Since then however it has gone down hill, painful and stiff even when walking. The ice pack and I are now firm friends, rarely parted and I am currently looking in to buying shares in Ibuprofen!

The Grizzly is not looking likely, the Jurassic Coast 100 is in jeopardy and I am miserable.

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!

    Oh bad news! Sorry to hear about your knee. Yes there will be other races, but I expect that you are feeling gutted right now. I know that you are a tough cookie, I don’t think that I would have made it to metafit with a twisted knee, so I wouldn’t be surprised if you recover pretty quickly. How long is it until Jurassic coast?

      Jumping doesn’t hurt the knee which is odd, but I don’t suppose it helped. The Jurassic run is 20 May, a long way off but training has slipped already ! Aaaaahhhh

        You are so fit – I’m sure that you will be able to complete it, maybe not it the way you would like though!

  4. Oh Shaz x hugs x wishing you a speedy recovery
