    good good and bad, finding fitness. 2 mi

    Biked 2 miles at level 7. I'm kind of surprised at how much fitness I actually didn't lose. After my hip surgery level 7 was "hard" today I was thinking, "is this thing ... read more

    great pool jogging 750 yd 00:27 63:21 pace

      I am glad to see you are going to do the surgery. They have came a long way for these kind of things. My wife had a spinal fusion and since she has been doing good.

      Oh Saliha, I'd like to see that side of me too. I really really miss my workouts. The other day I was dreaming I was doing a brick and it was awful in my dream because my legs hurt. I awoke, and yes, my legs hurt....but I wasn't drenched in sweat, I found myself rather disappointed.

      I truly believe your comeback is going to be amazing, patience is not one of my virtues & I can't stand it when someone tells me to be patient but all the injuries I've suffered over the years taught me that only patience will get you where you want to be :)
