Alpage de Charousse : I discovered this spectacularly beautiful and peaceful high mountain pasture by chance this afternoon, and even better the weather held up!! This is my last long mountain walk prior to return to Shropshire tomorrow. Then it’s back to reality: I have felt buoyed by the experiences, shared and solo, that I have had this week, and hope I will have the strength to revisit them when the going gets tough.
I’m into my 11th week post injury now, and at the start I don’t think I really believed it would be this difficult at times. I’ve learnt that I need to find more strength in adversity at present, and that a return to full normal life still feels a long way off. But I’ve also confirmed that I WILL get back to all the things I love to do, and learn to do more. My morning with James in the snow below Monte Bianco confirmed that, as well as 2 runs out here and another planned tomorrow.
Have I managed to push this shoulder rehab to another level? I’m not convinced, and that disappoints me. I can, however, certainly function a lot more normally and withstand jarring, but the push beyond 90 deg flexion hasn’t happened, and coordination in abduction is poor.
Will Tuesdays appointment with my surgeon confirm the need for intervention? Whichever way it goes I’m taking a heap of positives out of this week in France and Italy once again. Onwards and upwards
