I’m back! Both physically and metaphorically. I returned back home to Cardiff in the early hours of Sunday morning from my trip to Austria and Italy, and the time away had the added bonus of allowing my ribs to heal better so I’m able to work out and take part in all my favourite sports again. I’ve had two short sessions at the gym since I’ve been back, and other than a few twinges my ribs and back seem to be holding up. Ironically, it’s on the treadmill (the piece of machinery I fell on) where my ribs complain a bit. I’m not sure if it’s the motion of me running that annoys them, or if they know that the treadmill is their nemesis.
It feels so good to be working out again, although I did a fair bit of walking and cycling whilst I was away which helped me to stay in shape. I’m busy getting all my notes and photos together at the moment, and I hope to be able to share my Pisa trip with you soon.
