I think I surprised a few people, including myself and perhaps Blair Davies (coach-excellence). I certainly surprised my swimming training partners and probably a few of my work mates too.

I’d like to thank Gavin Curry at Ellon Physiotherapy for helping repair my arm and Blair for re-jigging my training to suit my needs.  And to Elivar and Reactiv Bodycare for their continued support, really appreciated. Thanks also to my wife Jane for doing the house choirs and the dishes.  Especially as I know she hates doing the dishes.

Lesson learned: Next time you have a serious injury before a big race, don’t give in too easily. The likelihood is you will make the start line.
