My date with the surgeon.
And I have my nervous face on.
I mean, I pretty much have a good idea about what is going to happen. It’s just hearing him say it, and I can ask detailed questions about recovery.
I’ll be fine going into surgery. I just know it won’t be pretty when I am done.
So, as of tomorrow it’s one week. Let the finger chewing….BEGIN!
It was turkey weekend here.
Canadian Thanksgiving. Food, Family and what we are all thankful for…..TURKEY! I had my share, both Sunday and the holiday Monday. Some say our Thanksgiving coincides with the start of hockey season….and that is why we celebrate in October, lol. Who am I to debate THAT!
Today was my turkey hangover. It involved A LOT of coffee and water. Bad combo for my Tuesday-Monday.
What’s on my mind now??
Races. When can I run them? Will I ever do a full marathon? I have so many races that I want to do. I’ll have to sit down and make a plan once I have full details of surgery and recovery.
So I am continuing with my yoga practice at home. I will be volunteering the first weekend of November at the Lucky 7 Relay here in Haliwood, NS, and getting some runs in where I can. (As long as my knee behaves!)
I was lucky on my Sunday run to tweak my stride a little and lead with my hips. What a big difference that made! I am learning more and more about my body and it’s mechanics as the years go by. It is definitely an adventure, especially getting older and having injuries 😉
So, what does everyone do during their downtime? Do you cross train more? Lift? Cycle? Swim?
I’d love to hear from you out there. Drop me a comment!
