I am on a rollercoaster that only goes up…

My rollercoaster ride definitely started with a big dip when I first jumped on at the start of this year.  There was nothing I could do but just hold on and go for the ride. Yes, it was frustrating. Yes, it was scary. But I had to start from the bottom to start my painfully slow journey up and I decided that I might as well enjoy the view on the way. I wake up every morning thinking about where in the world I could be right now, but for now my home in Campbelltown is where my ride begins.










I am not a fan of winter. My feet are ice blocks in summer as it is. I had to dig to the bottom of my drawers to find my thermals, leg warmers and winter jackets. Balmy 4 degree mornings aren’t as inviting as they sound. I now have had a chance to really explore the roads around my home going along the back roads of Camden and Cobbity. I often get quite distracted looking at big country homes and sussing out my dream house. I have already put my name on a few for future reference.  I have started doing a few efforts in my rides which is a step forward and always make a ride go quicker. Unfortunately, the weather cannot always be perfect as it has been quite windy and some days very wet. My Giant Envie and I both needed a good wash after this. My poor pink socks!


After 14 weeks of not running I started running on the Alter G. A lot of people ask me what that is. At the moment, I am using this machine so I can only run at 55- 60 percent of my body weight. It puts less stress on the bone that was shaved down and reduces the chance of picking up a secondary injury. Big thank you to Greg Cox and Emma Whitelaw for having me for the week up on the Gold Coast and Deb Savage for helping me build a strength and conditioning program.  I am very fortunate to be given access to the Alter G at the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs NRL Club which is perfect as it is only a short drive from home – so my gratitude and  thanks go to them for looking after me so well and  to Bernard Savage for organising this for me. I am eyeing out the tackle machines in their gym but. I have a feeling I might hurt myself more than I would hurt the dummy.








Being at home has allowed me to spend more time with family and friends. I can chat and laugh with my Nanna for hours. I also got the opportunity to attend West Leagues Sports Awards Night. Thank you to West Leagues and Wests Sports Council for awarding me Elite Sportsperson of the year. It is great to see their support from juniors to seniors to the elite sports people of the local community.


 























For now I am focussing on my recovery and in moving forward to hopefully getting race fit and getting back to racing. I can’t wait for the view at the top!
