The ribs were just about mended, and I was looking forward to a ride, when bang! I squatted to pick something up and there was a big pop in my left knee, next day it was twice the size of the right. Some wasted physio visits, and four weeks later I'm told that I've torn the meniscus (cartilage) and will need surgery.
Not one to waste my time, I had another, pre-planned, hernia repair (third time lucky) this week. Then, on the 19th March, I'm having the knee arthroscopy. All being well I'll be ready to start moderate exercise mid-April so I'll focus on building my new bikes when I've stopped hobbling.
On a more positive note, my riders are all going well (despite the bad winter) and I've just about learned to say "no" to more work - that's definitely progress.
Oh, and my missus, Julia, won her age group in the National Duathlon Championship and has qualified for the World's.
