Intense rest is pretty intense

And yes, the facial fuzz has been removed 🙂

For a week I’ve been sporting this stylish ‘moonboot’ to restrict the flex in my right ankle and help me with “intense rest”. Doctor Mel at SportsMed, though impressed at how fast the severe swelling has gone down, has ordered another week of this stylish footwear. Then she reckons I might need some physio to get it limbered up and strong again.

So that means my let’s-rush-to-beat-the-really-cold-weather plans are blown out the window. It’ll be June before I get close to Bluff now! Brrrrrr.

It almost feels like I need to regroup and treat the Arundel to Bluff segment (all 700km-ish of it) as a completely separate adventure. The game is changing as the season changes…

    Your body will thank you for the rest Stu… and the Bluff ending will be worth it…

    On the whole sounds like pretty good news – no lasting damage has got to be a good place to start! (or finish…or regroup..)
    a second adventure…would that mean a second book???

    • A second book?? I would have thought once I wrote up the tales so far, included gear lists and routes and tips for other trail walkers, plus a ‘sealed section’ (just for Karen B) of the supposed kiss-n-tell situations, that would have been more than enough! 😉
