There’s always a way

4 years ago my left knee was operated on – MPFL reconstruction. I couldn’t weight bear for a month and had a hinges splint for 3 months. I couldn’t cycle for a year.

There are still things I can’t do, but plenty I’ve adapted:

I can’t row but I can kayak, I can’t run but I can speed walk. I changed body combat to Zumba gold and now adjust Zumba fitness. It takes time but it’s possible to come back and do even more.

If I'm outside I'm happy! Fell running, mountain biking, climbing or skiing I just love getting out and pushing myself as hard as I can. As a women in adventure, I have found female role models really inspiring and motivating. There are definite moments I have really doubted myself and considered packing something in or giving up, but it's at these points looking to someone I can relate to, be that a friend or pro, really helps. Though this project I would love to find more of this type of relateable inspiration as well as being part of the wider movement to help remove any barriers to participation.
