9th January Best Laid Plans

 So best laid plans laid waste went to get up and my 'back went' so no riding at all and no driving until Thursday last week

Yes I should have been doing my chiropractor exercises , yes I should have noticed when my left leg got more problematic than normal but I ignored the signs and paid for it.

I went to a Zumba Gold class on Thursday and that was good fun

So of course now I'm stretching and it has eased but having started a 'Kick Start 2022' strength training and mindset week I did the lunges and can feel the sciatica doesn't like it 

Hopefully that lessons learnt 

  • Do stretches
  • Do NOT do lunges
  • Look at the sciatica care Pilates ideo GP sent you 

 I should probably start having regular sports massage again ....

Let's see what this week brings

New Year New Habit

 So it is 2022 and rather than start a FB group or similar I'll start blogging about Arthur here 

So quick catch up I lost Chorrie on  the 11th June 2021 @ 02:17 and six months later I'm still not OK. 

I will be OK but I'm not there yet.

It is little steps that will get me there so I'm pledging to myself to ride Arthur with Ros (thank the deities for Ros, she has been there for me at every abortive attempt to get back to normal and get back to riding) 

So let's see what 2022 brings

Gluteus medius

So went to see Richard at Orchard House today having had chronic sciatica since Friday 29th May (thank goodness places are reopening )

First appointment with Richard he thinks the issue as presenting today is my gluteus medius so that's a first so he spent a long time on it as I had limb length differential

So easy evening then get back moving no sitting longer than 30 minutes call him Friday with update and he'll formulate a plan from there and how it has reacted.
