Maybe the extra running was a bad idea - 26th April 2011
So I did see the Dr and it transpires that although the ribs themselves are OK, I have probably
inflamed an old skiing injury and damaged the cartilage on the ribs which is why it appears to be getting worse at present. There is not a lot that can be done other than rest, so there isn't going to be much of that with the Challenge in just under 15 days. BUGGER!
I think I will be taking pain killers with me, and the dog is going to be pissed off for the next week. I guess I could walk with the dog rather than run. Now there's an idea!
Addendum 28th April
Ribs now have light swelling, and click when you press them and sometimes when I move.
They don't hurt when you press them lightly, just click.
It is sneezing that hurts the most.
Hmmmmmmm.......... 2 weeks to get better then ..........

Another day and they are worse than they were.
This is NOT looking good at the moment.
