    Leg was still bad this AM so I continued with the medium to brisk walking on the treadmill. Another sunny morning out there, still chilly (-21C/windchill -26) but it's supposed to warm up tomo... read more

      Have you tried running on just your good leg?

      Thanks, Menno! Jan, I actually ran a half marathon mostly on one leg (I broke the other one around 7km from the end from running on it when the bad leg was so bad, so then I finished the race running on my bad leg). I frankly don't recommend it, I was in a lot of pain as you can imagine. And my time was lousy.

      It might seem funny but I haven't run any more half marathons after that one. Once like that was more than enough. And it's why I decided to have that effing operation. (It isn't as crazy as it sounds, when you are in a race you can sometimes not realize something is badly wrong. "Damn, that leg isn't working right... stupid thing... well I am still able to run...")

    When my future SIL was over, I showed him my treadmill and he tried it out. I set it to what I considered a moderate walking pace, and to my astonishment he started jogging. As he pattered away on ... read more

    day 120 of hoops, planks, pushups after my usual 2nd physio workout. The leg seems to have deteriorated in the course of the day, but was remarkably good this morning. Good night!

  12. Who's doing the Chilly Half or Frosty 5k? I'm wondering if I can ask one of you to pick up my race kit? I didn't know that there was no race day pickup. I'm signed up for the Fr... read more
