Last week in my training recap I said that I didn’t want to run 9.5 training miles by myself. Well I no longer have a choice because on Monday morning poor old Gideon took a trip to A&E because he’d started having abdominal pain and by Tuesday morning was -1 appendix!
Thankfully the surgery seemed to go smoothly and he’s now recovering and hopefully will be coming home today, but he’s not allowed to do any strenuous exercise for 6 weeks so no Swansea half marathon for him 😦
He’s obviously pretty upset about it and so am I, because It’s sad to have your training buddy out of action and he wanted to do this half marathon a lot more than I do. Unfortunately though the dreaded appendicitis doesn’t wait for your calendar to be free!
