Richard Ussher injured in Germany
Story by: Richard Ussher - Photo by:
Most of you probably know already it wasn't quite what I had in mind when heading to Germany but injury is one of the occupational hazards of sport and I have been extremely lucky over the years and indeed in this instance as well really.
I'm healing up nicely and the range of motion in the leg has gone from not being able to bend it at all two days ago to gingerly being able to spin a full revolution on a exercise bike. In just under two weeks we'll be in China for a 6 day stage Adventure race so my focus is on being recovered in time for that.
Ironically it means I'll probably be in better shape for that race provided the leg is OK as I'll be more rested and certainly not lacking motivation. Things are still very much on track for Xterra Maui and again looking back over the years often my very best results have come in years when things haven't run to plan all the time. It's just a matter of adapting the plan a bit and maximizing every area I can.
Hope you enjoy the read and thanks for the support.
