Juneathon Day 22: Netball umpiring

2015-06-22 22.04.29Oh bugger it, I’m injured 😦

My left knee has been twinging a little bit recently but I really felt it as I was coming down the last hill at the end of my 6 mile run yesterday. Perhaps a little foolishly I then walked to and from Exhall & Wixford Cricket Club where hubs was playing cricket that afternoon (about two miles each way, up and down hills) and it felt more sore. Today it’s really sore – waaah!

I wasn’t rostered on to play netball this evening, which is probably just as well, but I did try shadow-umpiring, and my knee was actually quite painful to run on. I moved about 1 mile over the course of the game, but mostly I kind of skipped and hopped to avoid putting too much weight on the bad leg.

I’m only a week into my marathon training! But there’s no way I can run on it when it feels like this, so I guess I’m forced to rest awhile. If anything, want to make sure it’s better for my running tour of Prague next week! I’ll have to get creative with my Juneathon exercises over the next few days!
