Twisted

Ian twisted his knee sometime in the middle of January, it turns out that it is a repetitive strain injury, he’s never had one of those before and if it hadn’t been so painful he would have been quite proud of it, after all he isn’t renowned for doing anything strenuous on a regular basis if he can help it.
Needless to say, the injury stuffed up his cycling routine and with it any ideas he had of cycling from Busselton to Augusta this side of the winter.
To make matters worse for him, the Café has remained busy all the way through the school holidays and is still ahead of last year on a week by week basis, so he has been working long days on his feet, when he should have been resting, but he has been resting when he can and the kids are getting quite adept at getting his beer from the fridge for him, so although the recovery is taking a lot longer than perhaps it should he has been able to get regular pain relief when he is not working.
He has been out on his bike twice this week without any problems, although he is taking it very easy, but he feels good about it and is determined to get out his winter gear when the time comes so that he is fit for next summer.
