Being over prepared as always I was reviewing the route for the dunstable marathon and dang well injured myself good n propper!
Not only did I badly sprain my ankle, I’ve wrenched my hip out of alignment too!
So, not only did I miss out on the marathon, I’ve still not been able to run more than a couple miles before I’m crippled by pain!
What have I learnt?
You may feel as fit as ox but some injuries really need good rest to heal properly. Plus all the doctors want to do is chuck painkillers at me!?!?!
6 weeks & 4 missed races later I’m finally seeing some improvement! Ugh!
Hopefully in a couple weeks I’ll be back to my long distance target and I’ll run the marathon route just because it was so much fun figuring out the route instructions, Hahahaha!
