Back at it.....
I’m back on my travels and thought I’d check in with whoever is reading this. I warn ya though, what you are about to read could be slightly, maybe, possibly a little bit on the negative side!
Hopefully I’m over what has been a pretty crap few weeks. I can’t tell you the frustration I’ve had but that’s life. I’ve gone through loads of phases ranging from chilled out/that’s life mentally to angry and flapping about in a panic. Now that I’m able to get going again I just hope things go my way.
As I type this I’m 9 days post-op and I’m surprised how quick things have come on since the surgery. The surgery itself left me in a heap for the first two days. Once the anesthetic and drugs involved with surgery cleared out of my systems I was back at it pretty quickly. There was major progress on Thursday when I was able to back squat in the Gym. Thanks to Chris and Lisa in SINI for the good direction on that one.

Now I’m at the stage where I can stop watching my belly grow and left arm shrink so I’m looking forward to getting stuck in! Even more motivation comes from watching everybody racing on the track; the UK revolutions and 6 six days are in full swing and I so badly want to be a part of it.
I feel like Nemo and his gimpy fin:)
This week I’m back to Mallorca and hopefully I can get in the grove. In saying that though, I was at home at a good time. A special man, father in law and friend Joe McNally passed away a year ago on Monday and it was a really nice time to be there. Just being there, hearing the stories and helping out at what has to be a hard time for the McNally family.
At the rate I’ve been typing these blogs lately I’ve had a crash every other one so hopefully the next time you hear from me that ain’t so!!
