Warning, this is a little bit of a self pity post!
As some of you know I’ve been training for tomorrow’s Virtual London Marathon but after initial training going really well I injured my knee a couple of months ago so it all started to go a bit Pete Tong!
After 4 weeks of physio I finally got referred to the orthopedic specialist yesterday who suspects a meniscus tear so has booked me in for an MRI. He did however say that although it’s not completely without risk he’s OK with me still doing the marathon.
So I got a bit buoyed by that and have been reasonably positive all day, but definitely feeling that upbeat mood wane a bit now. I’ve done more running this year than I’ve ever done and been following structured plans since February so feels a bit like a waste of a whole year as my cycling has taken a complete back seat. Plus now with the knee injury, riding is a total no no due to the bending so can’t even look forward to getting back on the bike after the marathon is done.
Trying to tell myself that even if I have to walk most of it, given the issues I deserve the medal for what I’ve put in so far! But any other words of encouragement/support will be gladly received
Apologies for the self pity though!
