Eddie IZ Running - Wednesday 9th & Thursday 10th September
10 Sep 2009
Wednesday was still sunny and a guy ran with Eddie who was an ex-marine. Eddie dropped in to visit Bolsover school, just out of Sheffield as he was running towards Nottingham. He had a school dinner of pasta with the pupils! He also tried to visit a castle but couldn’t get in! At 4pm he had only done 15 miles and wanted to watch the football so had to run really fast to finish over 29 miles! He did it and managed to see three quarters of the football!
Today Eddie is running through Nottingham towards Leicester. He had a twinge in his ankle which held him up. It turned out to be a medial deltoid ligament in his right ankle. There is a lot of tenderness on it which means if he doesn’t ease off it could turn into a tear or rupture. Jo has put ice on it and a compression bandage. Eddie is walking for 5 miles to test it and if it’s all ok he can keep running!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
