It’s been eight weeks since I strained the medial collateral ligament in my left knee. Recovery has been slow progress. I’m still some way from being fully fit. I can walk for about an hour with no problems but once I push it beyond two hours I get some soreness afterwards. I guess age means things heal more slowly. I’m trying to guard against doing anything too soon, so I’ve had to cancel a trip in August. I might go to a sports physio to see whether there’s anything else I can do other than some modest walking. This year looks like a bit of a write off.
