I know it has been two weeks since i gave you all an update but it has been a crazy couple of weeks. It has been two weeks of both triumph and of devastation, the triumph has been in the gym and i will leave it at that. I have never liked people feeling sorry for me and now is no different so i wont go into it and try and keep this update positive.
People keep sending me emails and messages asking when i will be coming home, i have always said “about 2 months” but i have been saying that for a couple of months. To be honest i don’t know when i will be coming back, i figured 2 months would keep everyone satisfied as it isn’t too far off.
This past weekend my sister Megan had the ‘Round the Bays’ fun run which is a 9km fun run (that’s 5.5 miles for you American’s), it is also one of the biggest fun run’s in the world which is awesome. Megan said 5 minutes after the start gun went off they were still standing the same place so it will give you and idea of how popular it is. I was on the ‘support crew’ which was just her partner Ned and i and we basically just turned up to the finish party area, set up an ezyup, hung out, read the paper and waited, and waited and….
No it was a pretty cool day, everyone we saw had big smiles on their face and while a few people had very red faces they all looked very happy and satisfied. There was lots of alcohol for people and a few bands which was cool, basically you just walk or run 9kms and then party for a few hours afterwards, now that is my kind of excercise!
Last week Mum, Ray and i went to see my cousin Michele at Omaha where she was house sitting for some friends, it was a great day and good to catch up with her.
Apart from that i am just busting my ass every day to get as well as i can, last week my physio measured the flexibility of my knee and hip and it is almost back to 100% which is awesome.
I will give an update again next week, i promise!
