>Well there have been a distinct lack of posts lately and for one very good reason, despite now being October I am no nearer to being injury free.
Despite months of rest and no running, very little walking up and down hills or anything else particulary energetic i am still having pain in my knee and a disconcerting buckling sensation every so often. I was forced to pull out of this years Mountain Trial, have faced up to not competing in the OMM and am now wondering whether I will be injury free by the New Year.
A leisurely walk on Cadair Idris – what is going on with my Dad’s hat?
So what is an injured and demoralised fell runner to do? Road cycling and the odd bit of easiest and accessible cragging. A 6o mile circuit of the Lleyn Peninsula and some pleasant early autumn cragging at Tremadog in North Wales and last weekend at Wallabarrow in the Duddon Valley.
