This year I have completed the Nettle Warrior Tough Guy comfotably, many shorter 3-10K runs, the Great North Swim and Yorkshire 3 peaksonly to flounder on a tiny hill running in the Mens Health survival challenge (which I completed easily last year). Although luckily this was planned to be my last major run of the year and I would have expected 10 minutes off my previous time!
Running a great time, already covered 5km and despite using caution on hilss, I slipped on a small (10 foot) grass mound. My main right foot slipped under my leg breaking my Fibula and Tibia near the ankle joint (about 2-3cm up). I have now have plates and pins fitted and a cast til, well I expect Christmas, although they say 6-12 weeks.
I would be interested in hearing from people who have suffered similar imjuries and how it has effected them, especially from people who have made recovery and carried on competing.
