Bit of a personel post this morning, I’d just like to welcome back my cousin Mike who returned to racing last night after almost 4 years out with a horrendous injury. Mike has always been an excellent runner but has suffered with a severely torn achilles that has seen him unable to run ( and we all know what being injured is like – frustrating as hell). He came to support me in my first Triathlon at Cockerham last year and has continued to offer advice and support this year.
In the past year he’s worked very hard and hit the gym, he swims like a fish anyways and has finally got over falling off his clipless pedals and has lost over 2 stones. He’s still waiting for an op on his achilles that may or may not be a success, hopefully it will be.
Anyways he ran the Ulverston 10k last night as a test to see if his leg would hold up and to gauge how fit he was, shocked himself a bit with a time of 40:25 – amazing. So I know he reads my blog and I just wanted to say I’m chuffed for him and I hope this is the start of the end of his nightmare.
So please join me in wishing him luck, and lets hope we can see him racing in Pirate yellow next year ?
