Well, I finally went to see the physio this morning! Mostly because I couldn’t move my head yesterday but I though I might mention my achilles too. Apparently it has been decided recently that achilles tendonitis is a bit of a myth and achilles pain is normally due to wear and tear. Oh, and it takes about three months to resolve, but the good news is….although I can’t run for a bit (didn’t mention next week’s mile but hey ho) I should be fine for a spring marathon on as long as I do my exercises.

New trainers, physio, 2×15 calf raises on each side at least four times a week and we should be good to go (maybe with a bit of running eventually too). Going to swim & cycle in the mean time to keep my fitness up, perhaps I should see if I can find a good personal trainer 🙂
