OK, so this happened.
Yes, that's ice on my ankle, a couple of weeks ago now.
I put ice on my ankle because I had a nasty fall when out running. I haven't run since.
I really didn't need this. But it's happened.
At the time I was 11 weeks out from my next scheduled event, the Ultra Trail Australia 100.
Now it's eight weeks out and I'm almost certain I'm going to be a DNS. After two weeks of resting my ankle completely I'm limited to walking, swimming, cycling, and the elliptical trainer so things aren't looking good.
I don't DNS very often so I'm not very happy about the prospect of it happening now.
I have the CCC in August to focus on but if I DNS at the Ultratrail Australia I won't have the points to nominate for the UTMB next year - my ultimate goal. So my two year plan, that became a three year plan, is now at least a four year plan.
Everything is all a bit out of whack and at this stage I don't really know what's next.
