Gently moving off the injury couch ;)

So 8 weeks after 'significantly tearing' my ankle ligaments and having an 'extensive bleed', I have begun my first tentative steps away from the injury couch!!

My rehabilitation is underway ๐Ÿ˜Š ... It has also given me a chance to review my route ... So if I can continue building on the walking, I'm allowed to ease back in to running from March 9th ๐ŸŽ‰

Getting there at last :)
