My week didn’t start too great as I had a DNF for my marathon on Sunday. My knee that I fell on last week became so sore I had to call it a day after 37km…5km from the finish. It started getting sore at about 28km and a while later I could not run downhill. I decided to rather be safe than sorry. I can’t afford a knee injury with all the great trail races I have lined up for the second half of the year.
Then Monday was Boston…
What can I say? I just don’t have the right words for this. So tragic, sad and unnecessary. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone.
I have taken three rest days and will test my knee tomorrow on an easy 5km. I will keep you up to date. I am willing to skip Comrades to make sure I’m ready for the trails later in the year. Hopefully it won’t come to that.
Peace and love to you all. Run strong my friends.
