This is the week that Thomas and I (LongBuddyRun) were to be tackling the Atacama Crossing in Chile.
Instead, we remain in Melbourne….and I am housebound, foot elevated, struggling to walk.
In a word…injuries. Collectively:
- 1 x PCL strain
- 1 x viral tonsillitis
- 1 x hip/back strain – limited to 20 minutes walking at a time for several weeks
- 1 x severe ankle sprain
We recently (and reluctantly) made the decision to postpone our 4deserts adventure. This was done at some expense (the entry fee is non-refundable), but we didn’t want to head over there to merely survive the event. We want the experience to be positive…not just hard.
I am still formulating a plan for another adventure before Xmas, ankle permitting. If things fall into place I will share the details here.
