So this happened yesterday...in a complete fit of madness, I climbed Cavehill with my son! My husband was not happy but it was such a beautiful day and my son was ok with us turning back if I felt unable for it. But with his encouragement and a few stops along the way, I did it! And I confess to feeling really emotional at the top because there were many times over the past 7 weeks when I thought I was broken - that I'd never get back to full strength again.
I'm hoping that with a big dose of determination, a good sports therapist and the right meds, the rehab can start...I'm still in pain but it's manageable and I know from before that exercise is the best cure. The right exercise tho - no running (for now) and lots of flexibility training will be key, alongside my usual weights classes.
Let's hope this is the beginning of the end of the moaning about my sore back!! 👊🏼I know my husband will be happy about that 🤣#belfast #cavehill #rehab #backpain #fitness #lookattheview #lovethiscity
