oh well as the title suggests it was a very bad day yesterday (Wednesday). We were both well rested after a rest day on Tuesday and decided to get up nice and early to start early, we were ready by 7am with one last job to do ... slather on the sun cream ... on to my last part to cover - my lower legs and feet and guess what? my back gave way completely! I couldn't believe it - I felt the whole lower back go from left to right. I was in such pain for 10mins that I couldn't move and when I could it was basically on all 4's which eventually led to a stooped walking position.
Sitting there for an hour figuring out what to do - the only ute hire in Cobram had none so it was a phone call to good ole Leanne - well she should be an event organiser! She organised a trailer, a physio appointment and drove up to pick us up at Cobram - a 2 and half hour drive from Bendigo, all Neil and I had to do was float down to the next beach on the Victorian side as there was no tracks on the NSW side to come and get us and when she gets there she has a pillow, a cushion and cold water - talk about spontaneous organisation!
So here I am at Bendigo - the physio said it was muscle damage and when I got to him at 4.30pm (happened at 7am) the muscle was still twitching away there and I there is a lot of local swelling but no joint damage so that was fortunate.
I on the other hand are absolutely gutted that this trip is cut short - not sure what to do now but just go home and recover.
So that's all folks!
