Saffers physio today and i aw...

Physio today and I awoke with the hump! Fed up with the ankle and not really seeing any improvement. Now into the 4th week of exercises and the physio said that I am just being impatient, to which I responded, I am a woman! He manipulated the ankle and noted that it doesn't seem as tender. Checked on my exercises and got me standing in odd positions. I am out of alignment, had me standing on one leg and bending the knee and even I can see how my knees and hips turn....so more exercises with a elastic band thingy to help with that. Still tender in the mornings but not whilst cycling, unless standing so he said fine to continue with the bike. No running still unless I want to chance breaking before the 1st July. He said that maybe I need to accept that my first test run may be on race day. Not quite how I wanted to do this race as wanted to do more than just get around. Not overly happy today and binned training for wine. Wrong attitude but new day tomorrow.

    Crikey Lass! That is a bit of a wind up. You need to listen to the body and see if you can build up time on your feet in other ways. Maybe power walking to start with. tedious I know, but maybe worth a try for a bit. Then it's second opinion time maybe. Enjoy the wine. I enjoyed my two glasses tonight (rest night dontcha know) Hope you can keep the fitness levels up; keep positive!

    Very frustrating for you! You'll get through it though, you've proved very successful at maintaining & even improving your fitness levels despite running injury in the past.
