Recovery

It has been a week since Ratingen and the awesomeness that was day one and the disaster that was the hamstring injury in the long jump. Looking back its amazing how quickly you can go from feeling on top of the world to the lowest of lows...in the space of a few steps.

I am back in Switzerland doing everything I can to get my leg right so I can compete in France in the first weekend of July. I am off to Valencia on Tuesday where the Bike NZ sprint team is to get therapy from the bike therapist.

I had an MRI which showed a partial tear, which was definitely not the news we wanted, but I have to just trust that I will heal fast!

I have been able to do stride outs today at about 50% and am hoping that I will be able to progress to spikes in a weeks time.

I have come so far since the injury that put me out of commonwealth games and I am in the best shape of my life, as I saw in Ratingen in the first 5 events, where I was on track to not just qualify for the Olympics but also break the nz record!

It's going to be touch and go in France but I believe in miracles and think that this is an opportune time for one to happen so please send your prayers and healing vibes my way...I don't want my Olympic dream to end like this!!

  10. Sorry to hear about your injury. Your courage and perseverance has inspired me to train again since my Lisrfranc surgery last year. I saw some of your training videos, so I started doing serious sprinting and jumping exercises again. The first time I was able to push myself 100%, I almost cried. It may not mean much to you, but your story has made a difference to me. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
