O.rangeCannon's pirate journey!!!!!!!
O.rangeCannon's pirate journey!!!!!!!

So I'm now a pirate, (ie normal people who are inspired by the runners world forumites doing IMs)..... This involves drinking beer, buying lots of yellow kit, oh, and a race or 2 a year to give it an objective.

I bumped into the pirates via the runners world magazine / forum, and they gave me the confidence to dare enter an IM.


2010 IMDE - flat, Outlaw - flat
2011 IM Regensburg 2011 - flat, IMWales - hilly, oh so windy
2012 Lanza - hilly and windy
2013 - IM Lanza - the return :-)

Recovering from knee issues, (too many rugby injuries) so now the plan is to swim OK, be an Uber Biker, and just let the run take care of itself. Oh Well

knee surgery

So post Lanza, the scans got reviewed, and yes i did have a issue.....

Had an arthroscopy this week, and had the meniscal cartilage tear trimmed and tidied.

Also had the plica removed/ scraped
Also have a torn cruciate ligament, ( old)
Finally have worn cartilage / arthritis on the end of one of the bones...

I see the surgeon again next week for the proper review but got the idea that things were not good. He made noises about not running again....

So i have cancelled outlaw, and have transfered IM wales to IM lanza 2013.
Lying in recovery..... well people do IM with no legs......

Finally read a great article in endurance corner about competing/ coming back from injury.
Ill be on the start line next year :-)
