Throwing it back a couple of months to when @ben.wadham helped me hit a PB in the deadlift at @imperiumplymouth
It’s been a struggle to keep consistent with training since Christmas with work, school runs, kids clubs, travelling for talks etc... but hopefully I haven’t lost too much strength when we get back amongst it.
So these shoes are cursed 🤨 @saucony fool me once, lose a leg, fool my twice, break the only ankle you have left.
These are the brand new shoes I just bought to commemorate me losing my leg five years ago. I wore these same style shoes when I lost my leg. Today, I broke my only ankle in the same shoes I lost my leg in five years ago. Needless to say, they will never be worn again.
I was doing a Para @spartan training race, the first of it's kind ❤ and not even ten minutes in I tried to get out of the way of some able bodied racers and slipped on some rocks. I heard snap, crackle, and pop in my ankle. Sat down and recollected myself then grabbed by friends stick crutches and kept going through the course. I skipped a few obstacles (as it was just a training day for us) but couldn't resist the A-frame cargo net, Herc Hoist, and fire jump at the end. (Yes, I was being careful doing these. Trust me, it was already as bad as it was and I didn't make it worse.) I have a lot of things that will be put on hold, and redirecting my efforts a bit. I'm in good spirits about it all, just need to #bemoreadaptive . Apparently I'm extra adaptive now in my @iwalkfree on one side and prosthetic on the other. 🤣 I look a hot mess.
Time to heal, and train core and upper body. 👊 AROO AROO AROO
It's Womens' History Month, so I want to take a moment to highlight these two powerhouse woman that often show me what adult bff'ing means.
Jamie is a business owner, who also runs her fiance's brand in the background. I'm not sure how you do it, but you somehow always create more hours in each day, showing me what it means to put in work for personal goals and the goals of someone else.
Amber is a badass. She has stood firm to her dreams; even as people doubted her. YOUR determination, persistence, and hard work toward YOUR DREAMS inspires me to continue to chase mine.
Surrond yourself with supportive, driven, and compassionate people you strive to be like. They say you are who you hang out with, so I'd say I'm pretty blessed. ❤

🇺🇸 What is a voice if it does not raise against injustice? When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful. If the whole world would raise its voice, it would change the earth.
Venezuela is experiencing a serious humanitarian crisis, and in a country where the media has been muzzled, social media has given us a voice. •
Hashtag activism isn’t a cop-out. It has helped to raise awareness against brutal regimes, and has played an important role in the ousting of oppressors like Ben Ali in Tunisia, and Mubarak in Egypt.
Venezuelans are hopeful that a positive change is coming, but we need the whole world to raise its voice against the Maduro regime, and stop ignoring the just cry of a country suffocated by an intolerable crisis.
🇻🇪 ¿Qué es una voz si no se pronuncia contra la injusticia? Cuando el mundo entero calla, una simple voz es poderosa. Si el mundo entero levantara su voz, la humanidad cambiaría.
Venezuela está viviendo una crisis humanitaria y, en un país donde los medios de comunicación han sido amordazados, las redes sociales nos han dado una voz.
El activismo en las redes sociales no es un artificio. Ha ayudado a crear conciencia contra el despotismo y ha jugado un papel importante en el derrocamiento de opresores como Ben Ali en Túnez y Mubarak en Egipto.
Los Venezolanos aspiramos un cambio positivo, pero necesitamos que el mundo entero levante su voz contra el régimen de Maduro y que deje de ignorar el sufrimiento de un país asfixiado por una crisis intolerable.
“This is me... Brazil is my home, the world is my playground, and the tennis court is my fighting ring.
When I was a kid I lost my legs and earned wings, instead of learning how to walk I had to learn how to fly and conquer.”

Thursday fun! Today we were testing Bebionic hand, the main purpose of this hand is to be office helping hand. Well in Glaze office there are many issues that you need to handle, don't you think so?
Whizzlink, did you hear of it? In the short film you can see a bebonic attached to Glaze arm but the whole point of Whizzlink is that you can mount any myo hand you like, Quantum, Covvi, Michel Angelo, Taska - what ever.
The whole point is that your patients within one socket can have cosmetic, design or myo solution. Everything without harness system! This is true freedom - to you CPOs and to your patients.
