Gregson to miss domestic season
By Tim McGrath .
Tuesday, 30 November 2010

Australian 1500m record holder Ryan Gregson is unlikely to compete in next year's Australian Athletics Tour, with the stress fracture which kept him out of the Commonwealth Games yet to fully heal.
Gregson's clash with Jeff Riseley and the associated contest with Jeremy Roff and Mitch Kealey was one of the highlights of last season's national championships, and one which Athletics Australia had hoped to market further with the prize money structure introduced for this season's Australian Athletics Tour.

"I spent 2 full months on crutches with no weight-bearing at all," 20-year-old Gregson on his blog of the time since withdrawing from the Commonwealth Games.

"From there I was allowed to walk around for a month to strengthen my ankle joint and calf and increase my range of the joint that was reduced due to immobilisation.

"I went to get an MRI last Monday to see if my foot was good to go so I could start running, but it wasn’t a good outcome. The area hasn't fully healed yet.

"I'm back in a boot now for at least another month."

Gregson will seek further diagnosis in the new year before attempting to commence training.

"From when I start running it will take about 4 months to build up to a decent load. So if it all goes well I can be doing decent training in May.

"Everyone gets hurt, I just have to do my time and learn something from it."
