This week should have been a really exciting week for me instead its turned into a nightmare 🙁
My big goal for this year was to run my first half marathon the Perkins Great Eastern Run
Earlier in the year I had doubts that I could run that far but encouraged along by my friends I started my training and found to my delight that not only could I do the distance but I actually enjoyed it too.
Then 2 weeks ago disaster struck and my Achilles started hurting, which I made worse by running at parkrun on my birthday.
Drastic action was needed so I booked myself in for a sports massage with Carolyn Western who worked wonders on my legs and took most of the pain away.
I have had total rest this week not even walking to work,and I have been heating icing stretching and massaging and hoping that I will be able to run on Sunday
One thing I know for sure ……. there will be tears, either of joy pain or disappointment !!!!
