Hamish Haynes – Letters from Belgium #1


Hi folks, Hamish Haynes here. Let’s bring you up to speed with my season so far… In mid-February, just before returning from winter training in Spain I picked up a hamstring strain; at that moment it wasn’t clear what had exactly happened.

I assumed it was a minor niggle that would quickly recede, within a few days I realized a scan was necessary, fortunately it revealed only a minor muscle elongation.

However even with regular physiotherapy treatment and a rehabilitation training regime it took six weeks before I was really able to train fully, racing has been out of the question until late March. As you can imagine this was a very disappointing state of affairs. Having been in mid-January suddenly without a team I was determined to make a fight back.
