On the backburner in Lewis
Friday, October 12, 2007

Things don't always go according to plan! Barry and I made it across the Minch to Lewis on a beautiful calm day on Tuesday. We landed, moved the boats up the shore a bit, I sat down to cook dinner and my lower back started to really hurt. I damaged the ligaments a bit about 3 weeks ago lifting furniture but thought it was better - obviously not. I spent the next 24 hours lying in my tent, before local paddler and organiser of the Storm Gathering, Mike Sullivan, rescued me ( wtih help from his friends Benny and Rory). I'm now recovering with a sachet of hot beans ( well, not literally.. but some fancy hot material ) on my lower back. I feel slightly better today and hope I can paddle tomorrow. Barry, meanwhile, is paddling up the West coast of Lewis by himself! So not exactly how we planned it, but I'm glad I'm getting better and I'm really grateful to Mike and Jayne for looking after me. His kids are keeping me amused on a walk down to their local beach!!

Hope your back is healing, it was probably the golfing. ;))

My back has given me brief, but painful, problems from time to time. My doctor claims that my nearly daily regimen of stretching and lower back and abdominal exercises is to credit for the quick recoveries.

May you have safe journeys!!!

Film at eleven?

Hey Madam,

sorry to hear that. That's what you get for lifting cast iron furniture. LOL!

of course what JB means by a regimen of stretching is 2 hours of traditional rolling practice per day.
