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.
