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!!
