Just a quick update. Each day my shin is feeling better and better but I want to wait before starting running again until all the swelling has gone down and the pain has gone.
I was chatting to Matt Williamson, who is a physio, on Saturday at the Devils race and he said he had something similar after the 2014 whw race. He said it was 3 weeks before he was running properly again. He did try after 10 days and set it back a bit so I don’t want to do that!
My next race is the Marathon de Ben Nevis (42miles) on Saturday 19th September. There is 8 weeks between the Lakeland 100 and this next one so if I don’t run for 3 weeks I still have 5 weeks to build up again.
I enjoyed being involved with the Devil o’ the Highlands race and I think we go the splits and timing done okay!
Finally congratulations to Jo & Jono who had a lovely little boy on Sunday. Seth Reuben Mayers weighed in at 8lbs 9ozs. We are thrilled to have a second grandson!!
