    good Is this rest day? 5.55 km 00:45 13:01 pace

    I slept in and so it was too late to go to the sports field. Also, the leg was kind of iffy. So I just went on the treadmill again... the sun came out and the snow stopped as I came up the stairs a... read more

    good hot 100s day 37 00:12:00

    Physio (not counted in the time, as usual) 3x140/130 hoops (dropped them) and hot 120 planks. I was told today that typical recovery from this particular surgery is up to a year! Yikes. Anyway... g... read more

    good outside... crummily 3 km 00:28 15:01 pace

    Time is plus minus a couple minutes. My leg felt pretty good when I got up so I thought I'd do my "rest day" 2-3k outdoors, as it was clear and dry out there, though heavily overcast... read more

    good day 36 00:12:00

    After doing the physio exercise routine (I do this at home btw, it's the set of exercises that I have found to improve all the things that are wrong with my leg after surgery) I did the 3x150x... read more

    good in the torture chamber 5.5 km 00:44 12:51 pace

    This wasn't a lot of fun, I couldn't speed things up today without a lot of pain from the leg so I had to stick to a slower speed. Also, for some reason my stride went funny today and kep... read more

    good day 35 00:11:00

    3x120x2 hoops and 120-60-60-120 planks after the usual physio exercises. I'm wishing I had pruned more off the tree in front of my house, as it was really thrashing in the wind tonight.

    good rest day 3k 3 km 00:24 12:58 pace

    Rest day kms on the treadmill. The leg was mildly sore but seemed to hold up OK. Have a great Monday! It's mild out and will get cold tomorrow, so enjoy!

    good day 34 hoops/planks 00:11:00

    3x100x2 hoops and 120-60-60-120 planks after my physio exercises. Same old. Day 34. There are two muscles that are still badly screwed up but most of the others are pretty much back to normal now. ... read more

    good mix of walk and jog 5.5 km 00:40 11:48 pace

    The stupid leg started making things tough again during the warmup but I kept on going and right now it feels pretty good. 3.5k shod and the rest barefoot (all on the TM.) I had planned on 6km but ... read more

      Like I said before, hopefully it's just working those kinks out. Nice run today!

      Thanks, Mari and Robert! Mari, I hope you're right, but there sure are a lot of kinks and a long way to go to get them out.

    good day 33 00:12:00

    Day 33 of hoops and hot hundred planks (150 hoops this time, as I dropped them at 50) after my physio workout. Back is a bit sore from carrying and manoeuvring a huge heavy box of furniture. Leg is... read more

    good rest day kms 2.75 km 00:25 14:45 pace

    Just easy rest day kms, 1.2k shod and the rest barefoot. Another day with no new snow, I hope... enjoy!

    good nightly plank etc 00:12:00

    Physio, 3x120x2 hoops and 120-60-60-120 planks followed by a few pushups. Same old thing. I think it's day 32. Good night!

    good a little faster 5 km 00:43 13:49 pace

    Darn the leg, it developed a bunch of new pains this morning, and was bugging me for the first 1-2 km but then it felt better. Hope that it isn't going to flare up later. A sweltering and slig... read more

    good hoops and planks 00:13:00

    3x 200 hoops each way because I kept dropping the dratted things, and then I did the 120-60-60-120 planks, after a more rigorous physio session. I'm annoyed about the hoops, I kept failing to ... read more

    good Weights and stuff 00:15:00

    The distance (I originally said I did 1.62k of weights) is just a joke, for the "Anything or Nothing Challenge", (http://bit.ly/DMAONC). (I like the way the bit.ly link is almost called D... read more

      The Anything Or Nothing Challenge is NOT a joke, Sir! (And the abbreviation is no coincidence since I customised the bitly link myself).

      I didn't say the challenge was a joke, Jan, but my entry was jokingly done. I did 2.25km this morning and entered it but that didn't register, so I added the mile of weights LOL. And now I'm taking it off to see if that registers, just out of scientific curiosity.

    Hadn't been on the TM yesterday what with all the walking outside, so I just did 2.25 rest day kms barefoot on the treadmill. Have to persuade myself to also do weights this morning. Sunny out... read more

    good picking up the car 4.5 km

    It snowed nearly 4 inches (about 10 cm) and so I had a fairly fun walk to get the car. It was a little slippery in places but mostly the snow was powder on top of packable snow, so it was good for ... read more

    The garage agreed to do one of the two things I had originally requested, under warranty, and trustfully I have dropped the car off and walked back over the ice and snow. It sure felt like deepest ... read more

      I saw someone make reference to Novemruary yesterday. LOL Have you been to any follow up appointments with the surgeon? Maybe ask about the state of appearance?

      Not sure I'll get my car back tonight... snowing heavily over here, lots of panicky people flooding the garage to get their snow tires put on. And Christy, I wasn't really planning to experiment with my knee on the ice, but as it turned out, it seems to feel better today than it did before this experiment!
