Just seven weeks to go. More niggles as a result of running five times a week. Despite some physio treatment and specialist exercises a pain in my right leg is not going away. It seems to be around the tendons of of the Tibialis Posterior, a muscle in the lower leg which wraps around the ankle and holds up the arch of your foot (more info). A visit to the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre should shed some light on the issue. Despite the strange noises of the MRI scanner and the challenge of lying absolutely still for an hour, I am fascinated to see the inside of my own leg - so much so, that I wish to share it with you. So here is a screenshot of my Tibialis Posterior, inside my own body!
I have no idea how to interpret it and await the report from the radiologist and the consultant...
With just 60 days to go until the polar marathon, it is time to kick start the fund raising. We have already raised £565 - so a big THANK YOU to those who made early contributions as the job is much easier.
Yesterday marked my last triathlon of the year ahead of the polar marathon. A great one to end with as the Jenson Button Trust Tri was in aid of one of my chosen charities - Help for Heroes. Unusually, the event involved two races in one day with the top 50 in each heat making it to the final and racing against the F1 champion himself. i came in 27th! Officially, we all beat him as he quit during the bike leg!
Since we are both supporting the same charity, he kindly agreed to have a photo with me, proudly wearing my finisher's medal.
So PLEASE, sponsor me and join my journey for the last 60 days to the arctic race.
