I’m really not sure where the time has gone this week. Apart from the fact it takes me twice as long to do with one hand what I would normally do with two, I seem to have slept a lot since returning from France week ago.
I’m now fully back in the UK’s national health service including the inevitable wait for appointments.
The clips (metal “staples”, rather than stitches) were taken out of my elbow today. It wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it might be, with only the clip right on the end, bony bit being a little sore now. Thankfully, the British clip remover worked with the French clips!
I am going to try and maintain some of the fitness that I worked so hard to gain, so I’ve been on the exercise bike a few times this past week. I’ve been mixing up the workouts as I’m sure that it will get quite boring after a week or two. I think I should also try to keep up some core exercises but which ones? A one armed plank? As you can tell I haven’t quite managed it yet!
I did catch up with the highlights of the Peak District stage of the Tour of Britain that took place on 11th September, the day we travelled to France. I’m really happy to see that the professionals didn’t make Beeley Moor look too easy 🙂
Anyone who knows me well will know that I will looking at this new period of rehabilitation as yet another challenge with obstacles to overcome. One new skill I have learned this week is to put my hair up, using just one hand. In fact, I think it looks better than when I do it with two. Thanks to the Internet and all those people posting obscure “how to” videos. How did we ever manage without?
