Day 182 and 183 Off

Well, I've delayed this post long enough. Whether it's laziness or a subconscious refusal to post the results of the specialist appointment from Monday.

Doctor confirmed that I have osteo arthritis in my right knee and that while it doesn't prevent me from continuing on this years focus it does mean I still will need to rest it lots and manage the issue with the caveat / advice I consider reducing my running and impact to my knee substantially.

Now that that is off my chest I can focus on this next weeks workouts having finished last week at about 12 hours (when I include a weights session)

I'm sorry to hear about the osteo-arthritis, but hey that'll get cured in the resurrection
