I had another physio session yesterday and I was dreading it. Two days before I had been subjected to a bit of a beasting to get everything moving and this had left my foot feeling tender and sore (a good thing, apparently). My physio must have seen my pained expression as I hobbled into the clinic....
"Is it sore?" she said. I think my facial expression said it all. " Don't worry, I knew it would be after last time as I was very aggressive with it as I needed to prevent it from becoming very stiff. I'm going to be a bit more gentle with it this time."
"Thank goodness for that!" I thought
And true to her word, my foot was gently caressed, bent, stretched and rubbed. I'm pleased with the progress so far, although it's going to be a while before everything is back to normal and I'm not allowed to drive until at least the 19th January. Got to remain positive!
The upside to having to stay at home is that I have been keeping an eye on the Pacific Big Wave season. There's been a big swell hitting the American West Coast and Hawaii over the past few days and everything has been going nuts! It hasn't been consistantly big enough for The Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau contest to run, but there's been some mega sessions at Maverick's in California and a super paddle-in session at Jaws on Maui...check the video out....Maybe I will get a chance of surfing some of these fabled big wave in the future. Biggest wave I have ever surfed was 2.5-3 x overhead, and that was thrilling!
