Those of you who know me will know I’ve been battling injury since November.
For those who don’t, I’ll explain.
Despite my advancing age I decided to return to the rugby pitch, this was going well until a game in November when I overreached myself by not warming up properly. I didn’t know anything was wrong until I sat down at home and had a few beers, alright more than a couple, I tried to stand up afterwards and I had zero power in my leg.
So about 4 weeks later, I was about ready to return to the field of battle and an incident at work involving my Patella, a steel chair leg and an unwitting colleague left me with a chip out of the meniscus covering the end of the femur and Patella Tendonitis.
I have been having Physioterrorism on the left knee pretty much ever since, today is the first day that I have felt like it is over, I cycled 40km and during that distance I climbed a couple of proper hills.
Not a lot of discomfort afterwards leaves me cautiously optimistic about my recovery, I can’t bloody wait.
Thanks for listening,
