His worst was a nasty back injury that required surgery. But he has also compound fractures of his feet and ankles. Recurring hamstrings.
I knew about the back injury but compound fractures of his feet and ankles!? Did he jump out the fourth floor window or come off a motorbike or something?

They occurred when he was trying to shake some of his 130 kg.

You mean stress fractures?
That's what I would have thought too. Perhaps that's what Jayde mean to say? But not what he did say :

"3 years ago I made the decision to come back and I actually broke both my feet and ankles , compound fractures through both, when I got up to go for my first 4am run at 130 kilos," Mitchell said.

Just to far for me. I’d have to fly into Melb then hire a car or something. On top of the tickets and hotels. To much for me
Not so bad for us Melbournites, it is only about a 150 km drive and accommodation can be as cheap as you like really.

I wanted to get $200 tickets. But we frigged around getting ourselves organised and by that time only $49 tickets were left.

Hmmm, I see. I reckon he’s meaning stress fractures as compound fractures of both ankles would probably take more than three years of rehabilitation.

Yeah, stress fractures makes sense. That's what you get when you haven't run for a while. Particularly if you have turned into a fat prick in the mean time, like Jayde had.

I remember coming back from a knee op years ago and as soon as I started running any distance I would get fucking shin splints. It was a constant battle. If it wasn't shin splints it would be groin strain.

You really need to start running short distances on soft surfaces, like grass and then slowly increase distance and the surface hardness.

Soft surfaces is the key in there, pounding the pavement and skipping on concrete is what causes those stress fractures, when I was at Eastside kickboxing gym we had a concrete floor, we had a few fighters sidelined by stress fractures from skipping on the concrete, we had to skip in the ring or on those ‘jigsaw’ gym mats in the end.

Yeah, when I was doing the knee rehab and kept getting shin splints the physio said grass only, and then it was sand and sand dunes and much later footpath and road.

I used to skip on an old piece of carpet laid out on a concrete floor prior to getting the gloves on. At home I used to roll out one of those rubber fitmats on the concrete and skip on that.

Sadly I won’t be going as it clashes with Father’s Day and the kids have made plans, I was looking forward to heading up for the weekend and having a look around. Surprised it’s nearly sold out already but that’s a good thing as they’ll put on more big shows there, it’s exciting to me that the main event is between two world level Aussies.

I was spewing when we finally got organised, logged into Ticketek and saw how few of the decent tickets were left. They were down to single tickets in the good sections or restricted viewing.

Really wanted good tickets, regardless that they were $200 each.

I hope they have it showing somewhere, we’ve got one of those ‘Sporting Globe’ places just up in Mordialloc, they may have it on there. Yeah, I’d have wanted the good seats if I was going up there, still, $49 is great value, at least.

It will be great value if you can see from there. At least it is side on to the ring making the corners unlikely to be an issue.

I still blame skipping on concrete floors in the gym during my teenage years for my shit knees now 10 years on. Added to it that I wore the same pair of joggers in the gym for bloody ages and they'd worn out around the balls of my feet well before I replaced them.

I dont have serious knee problems but if I run now or do a bunch of squats or whatever I always end up in bed that night not able to sleep coz they are aching.

The knee, foot, hip etc injuries that running and skipping on hard surfaces are well known but I don't recall ever being warned about it as a youngin'

Fox venue finder says there is around 60 places showing it in Melb. Shouldn't be hard up for finding a schooner shop with it on somewhere close.

This stage for me I've got a mate who's wanting to get the card on at home so I'll just hit there for a BBQ and watch.

One day in the future at a decent fight we should try do somewhat of an Aussie CHB meet somewhere.

That’s a good idea, I know @DB Cooper keeps swerving the idea but @VinoVeritas is up for a beer at the fights more often than not, @Mattress may be keen depending on location and @Innocent Bystander is an Aussie too, in fact I think he’s a Victorian.
