Out of Office

Well it’s few months since I sat down to write a blog, mainly because life has been extremely busy.

So, for this instalment, I shall bring you up to speed with what has been happening in the life of Revolution Sports Physio.

I think the last time I wrote we were about to set up camp at Newnham Park for the twentyfour12 mountain bike race.

Family travelled from waaay up north to work as therapists, support crew and one even persuaded to take to the trails with one of our teams. We battled with a leaky tent, some admin errors from the support team (sorry mum, I know you were doing your best) and of course there was ‘pants gate’ (a lesson for all involved in the importance of effective communication). But all in all the weekend was a huge success. Many tired legs were massaged, much coffee consumed, lots of laughs and very little sleep!! We received some great reviews and several people took advantage of the post event offer, visiting us at the Marsh Barton Clinic to get their injuries sorted.

Once I had caught up on some much needed sleep, plans for the next event were set into motion. In early August RSP sponsored a class in the show jumping at Bicton Arena. I was expecting a great photo opportunity as I got to present the Rosettes for said class. Unfortunately the winning horse decided to spook when the Rosette was produced, ruining what might have been some great marketing material. Luckily the riders were more receptive to my offerings, the sports massage and injury advice service proving extremely popular.

We also had some house- guests in August. Bru and Islay2 lab collie crosses came to stay. These dogs needed no lecture on the benefits of exercise, and relished being out on the trails whatever the weather. They definitely made me realise it’s easier to get motivated when you have a training partner or 2 (especially when it’s raining).

I became quite attached to these pooches, but luckily I wasn’t given much chance to be sad about their departure, as we headed off to the Dolomites early in September for some Via Ferrata adventure. (not sure what this is, check out our holiday video here).

This was an amazing trip, and a bit of an achievement for me as I’ve always had fear of heights. The weather threw everything at us from sun to snow, but thankfully no thunderstorms.

The remainder of September seemed to pass by in the blink of an eye, working both with the Navy and the Firefighters Charity, while zipping back to the office to make sure RSP clients were not being neglected (sorry to those who we couldn’t fit in, normal service has now resumed).

I had some pretty important meetings in early October, which will hopefully result in some really exciting stuff in the near future, so watch this space!!!

Also in October, a first aid course at the National Mountain Centre,Plas y Brenin allowed me to sneak a ride in at Coed y Brenin (one of my favourite trail centres), as well as my first multi pitch climb thanks to friends John and Bonny from The Telemark Ski Company.


I’ve been lucky enough to be invited along to do some riding with Ruby as part of her Big Bike Challenge this summer (the challenge is now complete, but I hear plans are afoot for it to make a return in 2016), and felt privileged to be invited to ride with the next generation of female riders as the challenge drew to a close – this was true Girl Power!!

Talking of challenges, check out row2recovery and follow the progress of 4 blokes (with 3 legs between them) as they attempt to cross the Atlantic in a rowing boat. One team member Lee Spencer, has kindly agreed to share his inspiring story of ‘Life Beyond Injury’ as part of a special Revolution Sports Physio event (details of this event will be posted on the website and Facebook page as they become available).

So that pretty much brings you up to speed. Oh one more thing, I have been talked into running an Ultra Marathon next February, so keep an eye on the Facebook page for my training updates (if you fancy joining us, it’s the Endurancelife South Devon Trail marathon. If you enter, send me an email with confirmation of your entry and I will send you one of our fab training T’s).

Once again, if there is a topic you would like to see covered in these blogs, let us know. Maybe you have an inspiring story you are keen to share, and would like to write a guest blog for us.

As you can see, we don’t like spending unnecessary time in the office, so we don’t expect you to. We don’t believe in long drawn out treatment plans that stop you from doing the things you love, so if you’re struggling with an injury, give us a call. We aim to have you back out on the bike, board, boat, crag or trails as soon as possible.
