I think it’s only sensible to give myself an extra 10 days repair time. It’s not much of a delay and I really need the tie to strengthen my lower back muscles in order to prevent another twinge on the road. If that happens, I’ll be on my own, laid up on the verge for days.
So far so good though! Living with a physio is certainly going to speed things up a bit. I’m pretty sure the ligament isn’t torn, if it were I’d be completely immobile but I’m already up on my feet thanks to some Codine. I’ve started regular stretching exercises (despite the pain) and am trying to keep on my feet.
Just to quash any doubts…. the Long Push to Ibiza is still going ahead!
