Firstly apologies for not blogging sooner but the golf season is now fully underway and things have been incredibly hectic. My rib injury has also meant that most physical stuff was put to the side during the letter part of March. It also looks like I will be visiting the physiotherapist on a regular basis over the next few months as the shoulder strain turned out to be a torn ligament!!
Luckily I can still swing the club and so 'GAME ON!'
We have just back after spending a couple of weeks visiting our daughter Rebecca, her partner Johnathan and of course our grandson Leo. I spent most afternoons on the slopes with Rebecca while Michele did her grand motherly duties and took care of Leo.
It was so tough though trying to pries little Leo from her arms at the end of the day.

The official ski pose!
Michele and Rebecca out for a morning run, and yes, Leo is in the push chair.
I also went out for some terrific bike rides and what a great place to soak up the great Swiss outdoors
Coffee break in the forest some where between Aigle and Noville
..............................................and the bad news is that I fractured a rib due to a bad fall on the second to last day of skiing! Basically this means no playing golf for at least 2 weeks!!
"He forgot to fix his divots, he plays too slow and leaves beer cans on the course! Plus he played Mark Wallace's Titleist pro V 1 ball by mistake (leaving him a crap ball in its place) after Mark had waved him through.To add insult to injury before Mark could catch up with him he had already hit it out of bounds!! He knew it was a tough country club before he joined!"
Yesterday the weather report was sunny with the occasional showers and so I decided to got out for a long training session on my bike!Fortunatly the weather people were spot on and the conditions were as they said apart from a strong easterly wind that made the last 10 or so kilometers tough going. In all I managed 55k with the ride taking me from the Nartelle beach through Sainte Maxime past the villages of Gassin and Ramatuelle, onto the Pampalonne beach road, through Saint Tropez and finally back to the Nartelle beach via Sainte Maxime. I have to say but the loop around the back of Saint Tropez is down right hilly, so this morning with my legs still feeling the effect it was quite tough to get any sort of decent rhythm on the course!
