pear shaped ???

Well, after a couple of months really good training I appear to have picked up a minor injury to my left knee.  It's  very similar to the injury I picked up in November 2008 although I think this time it was caused by running on the ice and snow.

The knee isn't painful although it feels bruised and it seems obvious to stop running for a week or so to let it settle down ... with help from ice and ibuprofen of course.

I expect to be running again next week but in the meantime I feel as if I'm in limbo really regarding next year's races.  Obviously I'm looking forward to the Commonwealth Championships in September but apart from that I don't want to enter anything until I know the date of the rearranged World Championships now that Brugg have had to pull out.

I'm just itching to race again - or I was until yesterday.  Maybe it's a sign that things were going too well.  Anyway I hope a date will be decided and announced before the end of this year then I can make some definite racing plans.

I'll let you know as soon as I can but in the meantime I have a few shorter races in the pipeline starting with a club event next Sunday.  See this page for more details.

Thanks Thomas

Not as many adventures in the pipeline as I would like at the moment ... awaiting the date of next year's World Championship 24 hr race first.
