Poor little Everest

She's just sat in the living room looking all forlorn at not being ridden for a fortnight and not again for god knows how long!

I was back at seeing the Ortho Docs on Friday for more xrays and another review after my crash on 2/2. The good news is that there's no other fracture bar the original one and the intense pain I get in my thigh when trying to move it is due to bone bruising - one step off a fracture. Doc is keen to get me moving about on my crutches, so I'm limping my way over to my moms every day just for a bit of exercise and to get out of the flat.

The bad news is that I won't be riding for possibly half the year, so several of my events will have to be missed - 1st session of MCC Track Champs, Cheshire Cat, White Peak Challenge and most likely the Manchester to Liverpool. I'm hoping I'll be fit again to ride Manchester to Blackpool. I was pretty unfit last year when I rode it, so I've no qualms about not training for it; it's purely a matter of whether or not I can sit on the bike near the time. Only time will tell of course.

But for now, I'm doing a tad better than I expected to.


  1. That has to be good news that your on the crutches/ walking so soon.

  2. Yeah. I was given them after 4 days when I first saw ortho doc.
    At the moment I'm trying to get my heel back on the floor just to get my leg straight again to limit the amount of time in physio once I get it!
