Njinga help make it possible
I’ve had to learn to be patient, to listen to my body and, most importantly, to focus on the things I can do and not worry about the things I can’t. In the last few months, it’s suddenly all come together again.
My goal for 2018 was to simply try to get back to riding properly again.
But with all your support, and at the time of writing, I’ve completely surpassed that goal and I wouldn’t be back where I am today without all of your help and encouragement.
Every day I look at my scars and feel lucky to be doing what I’m doing. There are plenty of people who’ve things far worse, so I’m grateful to have been patched up (although I’m hoping the other gammy hip holds out for a bit longer as I’ll happily wait a few more years before the other op!).
Finally, I was overwhelmed by my FTP test result (a new lab record) and couldn’t have done it without the support from all of you over the past couple of years. I know there’s more to come, I can’t wait, and I can’t thank you all enough.
