After losing most of 2016 to injury and sickness. The last thing I needed was a hack rider coming around the wrong side of a blind corner to collide head on into me. My injury was far worse than originally anticipated.
It has been 68 days plus since I’ve been injured.
Since my injury all I’ve felt is pain. I have an invisible dagger stuck in my shoulder which has impacted everything. Until the past week the pain has been unbearable.
I haven’t given up hope. In 2005 I ruptured my Achilles tendon. My leg was in plaster most of that year and I was on crutches for a total of 9 months. Not being ale to walk properly until 2 years later. Those years were hell, and being injured isn’t fun. At the time I felt that my life was over. I didn’t feel like I was ever going to play sport again. One of my work colleagues suggested I ride a bike and I’ve never looked back.
I rediscovered cycling and went from being an invalid to all that I have done over the years.
I’m down and will be so for some time.
But when I’m back I will be hearing the Rocky theme song playing in my head. I’ve got a lot of riding to catch up on.
Hopefully it will be soon. I’ve got to lose all of this weight I’ve put on during these months of inactivity.
