Recovery from injury

Oct 8, 2017 | Personal Stories | 0 comments

Eighteen months ago I was knocked off my bike and fractured my hip socket, pelvis and elbow. I spent eight weeks in a wheelchair and had four months of rehab.

I think my lifetime of doing outdoor activity helped my recovery, I was determined to get back on my feet, start swimming, am now back Park Running, have joined a running club and about to start x country this season. I am taking part in my first trail race next weekend. I think the fitness and determination built up over many years alongside with support from my friends who are all outdoors people helped in my recovery and my mental strength in doing so.
