Disappointing Day at the Races

Last Saturday I competed in the New Zealand Road Relay but sadly it was a day to forget.

I had been under an injury cloud for several months and had been getting physio for a pulled calf. As a result I started the final lap with some concern. This proved to be a bad omen as half way through my lap my left calf pulled once again and I hobbled up lame. Thankfully I had Lea to nurse me back to health and ease my troubled mind as I have never previously had to pull out of a race.

Here are two photos of me competing! Once again wrong date!


  1. It must have been a big disappointment, but better to pull out than make the injury worse. Never mind, there's always next time.

  2. Oh my, please don't feel too badly about it. Be thankful you have such a lovely nurse! And these things do happen you know, it's just a part of life.
    Hey! Would you do me a super big favor, pretty please? My father-in-law's birthday is today, he is 81 and I am trying to get Birthday wishes from all around the world, could you please stop by my blog if you could? New Zealand ranks as the other side of the world from England, I should think! :-)

  3. I'm so sorry Paul - I hope that it repairs itself so you can get back to doing what you love.

  4. Wow! After all I got a weblog from where I know how to in fact get valuable facts concerning
    my study and knowledge.
