Alex Hiam update

Hey guys, I have been working on my ankle a lot . I am doing my own physio to save money and I think I know how to treat it pretty good aswell.. I’m learning a lot about the body and healing myself. It’s pretty interesting. I am Constantly progressing, Healing and feeling more and more stronger everyday, With my ankle and my whole body . .. I am able to do pretty much any Physical activities with out to much pain or hassle in my ankle now.. Which is very relieving and exciting. I have been climbing mountain for physio etc.

This ankle has been by far the hardest injury to recover from. I Keep thinking It’s getting better then I find another thing I have to heal . It’s just my balance i am having a hard time with at the moment. . That’s delaying the last healing process.. I am able to ride, do all my usual tricks, But not comfortably. and don’t feel like it’s time yet. I have subconsciously been putting all my weight on my left leg, ( My good foot ) During pretty much every activity i do, Including riding…. so This is delaying my Right ankle ( the one i Broke ) From fully healing and building that last bit of muscle I need to be able to have a lil fall and get back up from it… I have just figured this out this week. So it’s exciting I can start working towards balancing my weight out on both feet, and should be back to 100% soon. All the physio and exercise I have been doing my whole body and mind is ready and just waiting to push the limits again. Yoga has been a huge help to balance myself out. I am feeling really confident and refreshed on my bike so I’m super excited and have fallen more involve with riding once again!

It’s been a long road but I think it’s finally coming to a end. And I am so grateful for this Obstacle, and I have learnt a whole lot that is going to help me in the future to be on my bike for as long as possible.

Below is a day edit from the England trip hitting up the Corby park.
