Thanks for the congrats on the returning to football, and likewise congrats to you on returning to skiing although you made your return about 2 years ago (so I'm a tad late) !
I think I'll live with the instability. I don't think I could go through another rehab - 2 was enough for me.
I think you may on to something with the ergonomic assessment. I know how I'm supposed to sit, but it's hard to maintain good posture for 8+ hours a day. I've been putting it off, but I think I do need to go back to see a physio for my hip.
The climbing is fun (although also scary), but the main reason I'm doing it is because it is strenthening my leg muscles more than the gym does. It's also for the same reason helping with my shoulder.
Good to hear from you too, and that you're progressing well with the running. I know what you mean about trying to re organise your life. I've also been spending less time on KG.
