AMA thank you and knee update

A quick thank you to anyone who dropped into the AMA on Friday and a little update on my knee.

Thanks to the thousands of DriveTribers who joined James and me for the live video AMA on Friday.

And thanks also to all those asking after my health following my recent parking incident in Switzerland. The docs have cleared me to drive again and even to ride motorbikes - which I have been doing and loving.

They've also told me it'll be a good year or so before I can run again. I know, I know, telling James and Jeremy that would be like telling them they can't stick needles in their eyes to a year or so but I loved running, it's been my therapy and thinking time all my adult life and I'll miss it. They didn't cheer me any either when they told me I'll almost certainly need a replacement knee... a little earlier in life than I had quite anticipated I might add.

But hey, it would be a lot worse to be told I can run but I can't drive or ride a bike for a year.

If you missed the stream, you can watch it back here:

  • It's a bugger when you have to give up an exercise you love, but you'll find another activity to get you going. Running is bad on the knees anyway so that's a definite no. Become an amazeballs swimmer or something. Show them two lazy sods what you're made of.

  • Hi Richard as I'm someone who likes running also, I can understand how much you are missing not being able to go for a run, it gives you that me time and clears your head, on a brighter note glad your able to ride again, the year will pass quickly and you will be back out running before you know it x

  • Thank YOU! I had a great time. And I'm glad that you're doing well and that you're able to drive again, and ride motorbikes! And for the running part, a year will pass quickly, so you'll be back doing that in no time! Stay safe
