doesn't really convey the feelings... but all I can say.

Well I've decided I'm going anyway. I'll be getting driven around the first week and Tash will be there for the remainder. Already paid for everything (except accomms and car hire) and by then I'll have built my leg back up to good capacity so it'll just be the (potential) stitches and hopefully I can walk the courses or at the very least it'll be a holiday. Might just take a while to finish if I do compete (or drop to AS courses).

Will have the stitches out by the time the MTBO week comes along although I have withdrawn my nomination for the ANZ Challenge team :-( Plus sitting around at home for another three weeks would bore the shit out of me.

Geez I applied for a job as a meter reader and I couldn't even get that despite my vast experience in walking. That's low. Might have had something to do with my current injury (which I mentioned on the application form) or maybe my job prospects are just totally non-existent.

Sorry to hear this Ricky, focus for now on recovery, plan your comeback for 2018! don't rush things and most importantly listen to the GPs / Physio

If you were a meter reader you might walk into a large inanimate object and then go all workers compensation. Gee, any potential employer probably knows by now that you have trouble noticing things in your way.

Sorry to hear. Good that you're getting a holiday anyway.
