the fat cripple

TOH started calling me that yesterday.
admittedly with a smile on her face :)

topped the scales at usual+7kg this week but i'm suspicious someone has been fiddling with them as checked just now and am +4kg.
have been doing lots of core and a bit of upper body stuff whilst injured and TOH caught me looking at myself in the mirror and feeling my pecs the other day.
as spud says (frequently) .... i really need to get back running!

will be interesting to see if this benefits or hinders my running when i get back.
gotta haul those few extra kilos up bogong at some stage.

now a week post-op and managed to walk the dogs (about 3.5kms) yesterday.
got out on the usual hanut near kangaroo point and it was somewhat inspiring to see people running past.
when the mum with the stroller left me for dead i didnt feel so good tho ;)

it is a funny experience having a running-related op.
you are so immobile afterwards and every day you (hopefully) seem to make such giant steps forward.
very easy to see progress but the reality is youre still a loooooooooong way from being 'back'.

seeing the surgeon next friday and will discuss a plan for when i can start to spin then run/walk etc...
cant wait.

Wish I wasn't going to C2S next weekend, I'd come along to Mt Coot-tha to catch a glimpse of the fat controller.

Maybe the extra 7kg is actually muscles now stored in your pecs :-)

Just catching up with your blog Bro. Hope the surgery does what it is supposed to do and you are back running before Kepler. Will you be doing your pre Glasshouse tour? I have told Belinda all about it.
