Finally made it back to the gym.. Gracie 1 - 0 Anxiety .. I can definitely tell Iโ€™ve not been training much as walking in general and stairs were becoming more difficult. That In mind I did some walking on the treadmill, the stair master, core work and legs to start building my strength back up again. #gym #applewatch #kissgym #amputee #hardwork #legs #stairs

Not often I head out to the gym on a Sunday night but so glad I did. I tried the box fit class today at @puregymofficial .. it was really good in my blade as there was lots of jogging on the spot; but the best and most satisfying bit was being able to do proper star jumps which I canโ€™t do in my everyday leg ๐Ÿ˜‚ small things hey and a nice little calorie burn for a 30 min class ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒŸ #cardio #gym #starjump #blade #ossur #ottobock #nike #ellesse #amputee #puregym #fitfam

Not everyday is a good day but there is something good in every day so appreciate those wonderful moments. Today at the Limbless Associationโ€™s 35th anniversary celebrations I won the Young Achiever Award!! โ€˜Young Achiever Award - We want to recognise the achievements of young amputees and limb impaired young people of which we know there are many โ€“ whether through their personal, professional, volunteering and sporting achievements.โ€™ Completely overwhelmed to even be nominated let alone win in a such a tough category with lots of worthy winners. Thank you to everyone who made my achievements to date possible. #amputee #award #limblessassociation #winnerwinnerchickendinner #proud #achievement #quote

On 6th March 2016 (4 days after my amputation) a consultant told me Iโ€™d never run again.. I wasnโ€™t having that, I instantly thought; โ€˜yes I will, Iโ€™ll show you!โ€™ However after receiving my blade the difficulty of the task in front of me became very apparent and my 5k goal seemed impossible because I could barely run 100m let alone 5km. As well as the physical challenge running is a massive mental battle for me but slowly over the last 15 months Iโ€™ve got stronger physically and more importantly mentally. My 100m turned into 400m round the track then into 1km, my technique improved, I dropped a shed load of weight and my fitness improved. Today for some reason with 3.6km being my PB to date, I just thought โ€˜Iโ€™m gonna do itโ€™ and I did. Words truly cannot describe the immense pride I have in myself and they cannot describe the gratitude towards all the people that have helped me get here, so for everyone whoโ€™s helped I thank you from the bottom of my heart; @pacerehab, @kat_sizer, @wilko_pt, Redway Runners, @hannah_mooretri , @kellys_smile_, @thearcticonefoundation, @ottobock_uk @aebodyworks @hambofoundation @rfuipf #runner #running #amputee #proud #cardio #ossur #ottobock

Such a rollercoaster of a week and Iโ€™m so grateful for the people that realised how difficult itโ€™s been and have checked in and supported me. Iโ€™ve had such a lovely evening tonight; dinner with old work friends and then drinks with current ones. Another new dress for my wardrobe โ˜บ๏ธ #amputee #dinner #rushfoot #cleg4 #ottobock #dress #asos #asoscurve #newlook #vans #evening #friday #rollercoaster #emotions #miltonkeynes
