Well it’s not great news as I’ve just had to pull out of Saturday’s All London Cross Country Championships thanks to my overstrained ankle ligaments. They have really caused me trouble this week which is odd considering I was absolutely fine after the Frankfurt marathon and I didn’t feel too bad at all after last weekend’s Chiltern League race!
I have just sent the following e-mail to my team mates and Club Cross Country Captain:
With regret I am not going to be able to run this weekend as I’m nursing an ankle injury/overstrained ligaments – it felt fine after the last race but I went on a training run on Tuesday and my ankled swelled and became quite painful.
I’m going to rest it and see how it is when the North London Champs roll around on 22nd.
Sorry to drop out at this late point but hopefully I’ll see you all at Alexandra Palace!
Good luck and happy racing!
So, with that I guess I’ll play it on feel and see how my ankle reacts to some rest and maybe some light running next week. I really hope I don’t have to withdraw from the North London Championships too!
