The MRI specialist concluded a complex radial tear of the medial meniscus on the posterior horn. 
My consultant told me old trimmed tears are likely to show up and he his judgment was exactly that. He had a good look at the remaining cartilage and said osteoarthritis is unlikely to present for a while yet and with a fresh prescription for Celebrex (anti inflam) in my pocket I will be on the road tonight!

I am trying to distance myself from my North London Footballing love (it is too painful to even go there) and spent the day yesterday watching the Paris Marathon (until I got kicked off the TV by the family demanding to watch the Block!) so onto the computer to watch Bekele finish it off and then 6 hours of the tour of Flanders.
I loved seeing Spartacus sprint for his third victory there.

Game of Thrones starts again tonight.

Cheered on by a crowd of wild and enthusiastic supporters , Lord Garmin celebrated a return to top flight athletics with a stunning new global mark for the slowest Kilometre ever run by a 52 year old . Still showing signs of a debilitating knee injury the Scotsman started cautiously but with the deafening roar of the crowd behind him he managed to slow to a barely perceptible impression of movement while staying perfectly balanced and poised . The result was a stunning new global mark , verified by Garmin , of 28 minutes and 41 seconds for an accurately garmined stretch of road at Clontarf , a seaside resort that will now be forever indelibly linked in Athletic history with that of Lord Garmin . Modest as always , Lord Garmin thanked his supporters for showing faith in him while many detractors had written him off fearing his heroic attempt to take on the world's best in Duathlon may have overreached even his reserves of endurance and courage . As the prime minister quipped when presenting Lord Garmin with his bronzed Turtle trophy, heart can only carry you so far . At the end of the day it comes down to character . The bronzed Turtle award now sits proudly with Lord Garmin's Olympic Park Run Gold medal and world masters 1500 relay world record . Lord Garmin will be appearing on May 3rd at Minipinni Park Run where he will be the celebrity attraction and will be available to sign autographs and pose for photos with his fans and female admirers .
