>Here’s hoping…..

>Went on another 10 mile walk yesterday in the new boots that I had to get. Mine had come to pieces when I did my 17 mile walk so I’ve had to buy some new ones. It all went well at the time and I had no blisters from the boots (well and truly recommend Northface!!). Unfortunately my knee which has been giving me a few problems the day after a walk, started hurting and is now in quite a lot of grief.
I’m just off to get a knee support, some pain killers and apparently red flower oil is meant to be good. I’m absolutely gutted after all the training I have put into this event that I am in so much pain. I think I’ll have to tone the training right down which has really upset me. I feel like I’ve worked really hard to get into the right physical condition and now I’m going to have to stop or at least only do really short walks. My priority is to actually be fit enough to do the walk and if that means that I have to do it in more than the 10 hours that I had hoped to complete it in, so be it, but I am well and truly gutted.
So if anyone has any hints and tips (other than paying out for a physio which we can’t afford after all the equipment I’ve bought!)please let me know!!!

The good thing is that Nick has said he’ll drive the minibus for us….I’m really pleased as it will be lovely to have him up there with us, supporting the whole group (ane me!!!).

Anyway, better get off to buy this stuff and hope that it all helps my knee to recover.
