Well, my physio / rehabilitation class has been going pretty well so I was feeling very brave and drove my 40 year old mini to a car show last Sunday. It was great, it’s the first show I have made it to since I finished rebuilding it over the winter and it was great to see it in a field of similar cars - not to mention great to drive it too!
As I was walking round the field I stumbled on some rough ground (I didn’t see the small rain gulley…) and felt an all too familiar sensation in the back of my achilles. Thankfully I haven’t torn it, well not badly anyway. I’ve been limping quite heavily since then but ignoring the discomfort. My physio watched me limp into the room today and asked what had happened. She promptly sent me home to rest it and booked a session for a week’s time. Oh well, I can still walk and drive so at least it’s not a total loss and just a temporary set back.
Not quite how I wanted to feel 16 weeks after my ATR.
