Peter: Well the good news is I’m told there is no tear in the hamstring like I was told by the physio I saw on Sunday !! however the big New Zealand rugby player of a physio I saw yesterday told me that I have a slight strain (caused probably by using a new bike with the saddle too high and cleats for the first time) also he says I don’t stretch out enough after exercise so the musle does not have time to recover or repair before exercise again. So to fix this – 4 intensive sessions with this physio he said ‘I will get you sorted one way or the other’ and a load of self massaging exercises with a foam roll – all in all quite positive. I certainly feel better than I did after Sunday.

Now the focus must be on getting this right whilst getting back to the training Happy days?
