Neil's marathon is over for 2015

17th February 2015

After a training run 10 days ago, in which Neil finished the event hobbling, he's been on crutches ever since.

Yesterday, physio Aaron took a look at his injury and this was the prognosis

Sad faces... especially for CHICKS but we'll be working with them through this year - and despite the fact that Tina offered to replace Neil, or to push Neil round in a wheelchair, the security rules won't allow it, so all that can be done is defer the place until 2016.

If you feel so minded, please continue to donate to their amazing charity.

CrutchesAfter a week off work and some training runs under his belt, there was an expectation that Neil would be fighting fit for his marathon training, until Tina fell over Neil's crutches.

Neil explains what happened.


So, at the moment, Neil's marathon training for CHICKS is currently on pause....with 75 days still to go.

Maybe Neil could do a marathon like this man?

Neil's bike challengeOk, well it was on an exercise bike but at least it kept me busy (and out of trouble) on Friday's show. Thanks Tina!!

So after allowing my sore arse to have a rest yesterday it was back on with the kit today and more miles under the belt. Not wanting to talk too soon but something seemed to click today and everything felt easier! I glided OVER the muddy fields rather than dragging myself through them and I had a lot left in me even after I'd finished. I know there are lots more tiring, painful and sore training days ahead though...but as for today, I'll take it!
