I still had the hip injury and it was niggling me all the time. I finally managed to get some physio and she was brilliant. I felt better immediately, but she gave me some bad news. I was allowed to run for 4-6 weeks and I had to defer my place in the London Marathon – not happy!! However, I had to remain positive and remember that the end game is the Ironman on July 20th, so I needed to listen and follow her instruction.
She set me a strength program and I “upped” my swimming and cycling.
