As some of you may know I have been training for the Rotorua Marathon that is coming up May 3rd this year. Everyone keeps asking how the knee is going? Is the knee going to make it? Aren't both knees 50 years older than you are? Well the knee was going fine.
Up until and including my 21km runs, the knee has been fine. At 21km plus though my knee started giving out. At first around the 24km mark, so I rested a week; then around the 17km mark, so I rested another 4 or 5 days; now it gives out at around 3kms. Not so good when 42km is the goal.
I am currently in consultation with my doctor and will be seeing a specialist soon. Will see how it goes. Will keep you posted.
