One of our club-mates here burst her calf playing soccer, then got compartment syndrome and ended up getting an emergency op to save her leg. Who'd a thought ?

I was amazed, she seemed relatively unfazed, but yeah, scary.

I'm still pretty unfazed about last summer's huge stomach operation. It's like it never happened, & I had no time to consider the options, or consequences (luckily). Even now, i get really tired very easily. I was told it would be 9 months to full recovery. Having a total break from running is, in many ways, a really sensible idea TBH (Liz is all for it).
