You’ve been pounding the pavement for weeks if not months in preparation. Honing your body and figuring out all the details like the right hydration and nutrition on the day.

Painful steps forward… Woohoo! At about 6 weeks post injury I had my first full, undisturbed night’s sleep – luxury! Also, I was starting to push the rehabilitation beyond the ‘one size fits all’ protocol I had been given. I should say here – this was only because, as a Physio, I know what is […]
