After 6 years of waiting to get a place in the London marathon, I finally welcomed the "congratulations" magazine through my door last October. Then in December last year, I lost a very dear friend to Cystic Fibrosis so the charity to run for took no consideration at all. With training going really well and being up to 17 miles by the end of February, disaster struck. I rolled my ankle badly and partially tore a ligament. As you can imagine, the emotions, tears and upset were immense, my immediate thought that my dream had gone. My physio advised that the tear wasn't too bad and was convinced I would still be able to run, advising to cycle in an attempt to keep cardio fitness up. That was 3 weeks ago. I have been "allowed" to start "jogging" this week, but when I go today, I am only allowed to do 15 minutes and I'd be kidding myself if I said it was "comfortable". Having been cycling 3 or 4 times a week, doing intervals or tempo as I would have done had I been running and even a 2 and 3/4 hr bike ride last Sunday, am I kidding myself that I'm going to make it? Or should I defer and go for it next year? I'm beside myself! Completely gutted. And receipt of the registration details this week didn't help!!!!! Thoughts??
