Ok, well, just over a week ago I hurt my knee when I was just going out running!!
Thought it was nothing, as you do, and went to Physio next day and Docs!
In a big fat stupid NUTSHELL, I’ve torn the muscles at the bottom of my Quadriceps and along with Cartilage I had removed in my teens, is causing me huge grief!! So, with my first event looming, Sunday 25th MAY, yes, THIS Sunday coming, I rested as told to, took the pills, did exercises given to me by the physio, and had physio to..... last night, had the news I was dreading!!! CAN'T DO THE EVENT!!! Ok, it's not my first Tri, it's a MTB Marathon in Ruthin, but was my first event of the year, and was SO looking forward to it, giving me the spring into my first Tri @ Tatton on the 8th June!! He said, in a word, 'do it at your peril!!' Do it and it would probably only jeopardise June 8th!! Not an option really, and I don't want to not do Tatton!! Gutted isn't in it, and yet, heart of hearts, I know I shouldn't, it's still not right, and yet the little devil sitting on my shoulder says 'do it'!! I know I can't, feeling flatter than the proverbial FLUKE, and now, the world is against me!! Any words of ass kicking would be muchly appreciated and any one else with similar experiences, cause we never like to be alone in these things, would be muchly appreciated!!
On a slight plus, he said I could swim, and for the last 3 nights I’ve hit a PB every night!! I've gone back into the Gym and I’m doing low stroke rowing machine!! Not what I want to do, training was coming on SO well, and now this!!!! ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [:(] [:(] [:(] [:(]
