Potted History – March 2012Posted: March 26, 2012
After visits to A&E, fracture clinic and an x-ray check up, I asked the doctor if I could exercise on a turbo, basically he said “no, on health and safety grounds”.
To be honest I hadn’t really thought it through – getting on and off the bike for starters! So I’ve not been in the saddle for 3 1/2 weeks now!
Friends, family and neighbours have been really good and I’ve been taken out and had lots of help, the simple tasks take ages when you’re not used to hopping, crutches and non weight bearing.
I’ve been trying to do exercises for upper body and legs where possible.
Fellow Hamm riders are keeping me in the loop and I can’t wait to get back on the bike – hope I don’t slow them down too much when I’m back, as they’ve been getting the miles in on the Sunday assessment rides.
Roll on April 12th – POT OFF DAY (I hope!)
