I’m Back!

I’ve been back in Chamonix for a couple of weeks now and it has been more or less solid work during this super busy holiday period.  This week however I managed to make it out for a few hours of skiing!  I have been working really hard on the physio and things are feeling really good.  It seemed quite apt that my first days skiing since I broke my leg was at the Le Tour baby slope.  This is where skiing started for me 4 years ago so it was a bizarre feeling to be starting all over again in the same place.  The day after Le Tour I headed out for another ski at Brevent, which again went really well I even skied a black run.   I’m so happy with how things have progressed since my injury and also very surprised by how quickly I have returned to sport.  My surgeon told me initially that I wouldn’t be doing any sport untill at least 6 months after my op.  It turned out to be 2 months and 12 days. There is still a way to go before I am back to my normal pace but I really can’t complain.

I’m looking forward to getting out in the big mountains again soon but for the mean time its more pistes and one legged squats!!

Riding the button lift at Le Tour. Where it all started.

  1. Congrats! I’ve been anonymously following your adventures this winter, so it’s really good to hear you’re doing well already. I’m healing from fracturing my spine last week, so stories about quick recoveries are the best. Enjoy the rest of the winter!

  2. Brilliant progress – young bodies mend so much quicker but you’ve obviously been really working hard on rehab. Have fun!
