Rule Number 1 - Avoid the Knife

not sure which one of Tim Noakes (the lore of running) rules this is but i'll say its number 1.
saw 'guru sensei' physio this week.
and he started talking about getting an itb tendon release operation.
bloody hell i thought physios hated the knife!

he wanted to see me next week (but cant until the week after) when he will discuss again.
have pretty much made up my mind not to get it operated on.
decided some years back to get the right side 'fixed' if it flared up again.
it never did and that was 4 years ago now.
hope making the same decision again will help the left side too :)

heading to sydney in a week for TOHs work conference.
usually i would do a fair bit of running when travelling but i wont be able to do so this trip :(
spud doesnt know this yet but i'm going to pop into his work every day and just play with some stuff to keep occupied - hearing aids and things.
maybe make some design improvements ;)

next 'test' run in 2 weeks.
nothing until then.

I don't blame you wanting to avoid the knife. Sounds a bit drastic.

Make sure you give Spud a belly punch for me. Hmmmm, make it two, better give him one for Clairie.

Are you allowed to operate on yourself? Could save some money :)

Geez mate doesn't sound too good - here's hoping that the run in 2 weeks goes well.

Perhaps Spud can fix you a bionic ITB? :P
