Roz Purcell has opened up about her recent leg injury, revealing that it has forced her to slow down a little from her hectic lifestyle.
The hiking enthusiast is usually out doing just that most days, or she’s sea swimming, canoeing or even rock climbing! However after a recent freak accident, Roz revealed a couple of weeks ago that she had fractured her leg.
Previously she has shared that this is a big fear of hers; “I honestly have always said breaking a lower body bone is such a fear of mine as I rely on hiking & movement for my head but here we are.”
Since then she’s been resting up at home and shared to social media that she’s actually had a good time resting and relaxing.
“I haven’t been online as much this week because I’ve been thoroughly enjoying doing nothing. I thought I would lose my mind after breaking my leg because I’m always so on the go but it made me realise that I’ve never actually just stopped and done nothing.”
Continuing the 30-year-old added; “I definitely have that personality – probably not strange but I’ve been brought up with the idea that you can’t be doing nothing, you can’t be sitting around, you always have to be doing something, always have to be working.”
“This is the first time I’ve actually stopped and had a reason not to move, to do anything, not to get out of bed at the crack of dawn, not to train.”
It seems that rather than finding it as difficult as she thought, instead she’s enjoyed switching off from her busy lifestyle; “It’s nice I’m actually quite enjoying this. I’m already like “oh no, I only have four weeks left in this boot, I could do this a bit longer.”
We’re sure she’ll be itching to get back out hiking and working again soon, and we hope she’s on the mend!
