    January 31, 2015 by crazymadliving

    After walking with a damaged right ankle for about six months, I finally had surgery on 26 January.

    What with everything happening in my life – busy work season (one of my clients is the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon), the kids having just started a new school year (including Da Son starting at a brand new school) – I considered moving the surgery until May. But in the end, I found myself booked in at Constantiaberg Mediclinic at 6am last Monday.

    It turned out to be a very difficult two days, and I am still struggling with pain management and the frustration of being immobile. But I don’t want to bore you with the details. Instead, here’s a summary of my surgery…

  10. Plot twist – Now Pink and I have something in common…

    This story’s getting a little old now…

    January: overhydrate & collapse at Ironman 70.3 and wake up in the medical tent.
    January – March: walk around with my ankle hanging on the floor. An MRI diagnoses a non-existent peroneal tendon.
    April: Peroneal tendon reconstruction & repair surgery.
    May & June: Foot in the air, in a leg cast.
    July – September: Intense rehab to get back on track, in order to join the rest of my training team in preparation for IM70.3 in 2014.

    That was my year so far. Then I resigned from my job to start up my own freelance business and focus on my family. I had clients lined up and they were all eagerly waiting for me to work out my notice period so that I could blind them with my awesomeness from October…
