60mph – 0 mph in 2 weeks.

I’m hoping my visits to Stefan (our Sports Therapist) and Liza (Osteopath) over the last 3 days have sorted my troublesome hip out. I have a very tight Psoas muscle (lower back to hip) which has thrown a spanner in the works and raised negative doubts. However, i am much more optimistic now after Stefan dug his elbow in my hip and nearly made me cry. And Liza pretending she was only giving me a cuddle before popping me like bubble wrap…which nearly made me cry again.

For the time being, no running at all for Mr Dave though. Patience and I dont mix, especially as we leave 7 weeks today.

We had another live Radio Solent interview this morning. The presenter eluded to me breezing round this challenge because of my athletic background-cough, cough, splutter, splutter-no chance. I’m under no illusions it will be absolute hell. We’ll need lots of support so please come and shout encouragement to two old men trying to do some good!! Please!!
