OK, so it wasn’t Edale. I had a bit of a problem with my old (not so) faithful motor so I kept things local over the weekend and went back to Dovestones Reservoir.
Nevertheless, it was good to give the legs and lungs a proper workout again, not to mention the back.
I’m pleased to say that all was well. I’ve lost quite a bit of fitness, no doubt, but my strength has returned. It was all rather wonderful and almost prompted one of those zipadee-dooh-dah moments.
And today I had some more good news. I’ve been ‘discharged’ from regular weekly sessions with my physio and now will be having the occasional check up (assuming there are no other problems).
This is a significant milestone and I am delighted.
Although I’ve held back on detail here, it has been a pretty ropey three months or so and my back condition has been one of many woes.
Let’s hope my luck is on the turn… good health, after all, is the most important thing.
Thanks to those who have sent good wishes in the comments section while I’ve been working through all this… they have been much appreciated.
