INJURY RECURRENCE UPDATE
Firstly, thank you for your thoughts. I have so much appreciated your messages and replies to all my posts.
Many of you mention my health. Let me say that my health is fantastic; it’s just that I have a minor sports injury. In the context of what I have been trying to do it is important, sure, but I feel very fit and strong.
Everything about the car is running great but a vital suspension link has busted.
I walked 280 miles these last two weeks, and I felt great until Thursday when the leg suddenly pinged again. The last 10km was painful; the last 1km was agony. It feels worse than last time so I won’t be going anywhere soon.
Maybe my body is telling me that there are limits …
Had it happened out on the west of Gower I might have hung around over the weekend to drink some sun, but I couldn’t bring myself to stay a moment longer on the awful campsite I arrived at on Thursday. So I jumped on a Megabus from Swansea to be home with my wonderful people.
As to how I’m feeling, well I did my grieving for the original goal last time. Now I feel resigned but realistic. I knew there was a high probability the injury could recur, so it is less impacting emotionally.
Again I’ve not yet decided what to do next but a rethink is likely.
Sorry to let you get all inspired and interested only to puncture it again. And whatever I decide I am truly grateful for the charity support, which will stay open for the time being.
More pictures and philosophical thoughts to come.
