Keeping positive though honest it's really all good once we get over this lump thing really that's it. So I have a dicky knee who cares not important in scheme of things I'll just have to find something else to enable me to eat and drink so much (although not given up running just yet... Just saying not end of world and all that, just hope I can still snowboard or kick a footy with the lad in future!!)
OS sadly I was on a treadmill yest doing some cross training which meant highest incline hard walking and my heart rate hit about half marathon to 10km effort and I worked out that it would take me about 7-8 hours to do a marathon. Not too happy about that and frankly does feel a tad embarrasing at the gym!! I couldn't even speed up and run fast when the hot chicks hopped on nearby apparatus so had to go hide in weights area
sorry to butt back in, just to answer a couple of queries (thanks for asking btw folks!), 2013 will not be my year (running wise) but hopefully it will be the getting back to running at some point year! rehab still pretty bad, 7 months almost post op, and still no chance of running can't do a one legged squat (or small dip even) yet, but still things are improving a bit very slowly. still of view op was a mistake at present and unlikely to even get back to pre op state my knee, but we'll see how it is later in the year.
Baby is awesome, really enjoying it, lack of sleep hard, but everything else just great. had a few ups and downs over past few months, cancer scare for wife, (still not really resolved so an op to remove a lump in March to look forward to) and myself having a bout of food poisining or noro virus (still that got rid of 3-4kg extra i was carrying at the time!! most of which i have managed to keep off for now). and i have lost my job (well i decided not to renew my contract after the offer was at a reduced rate - so decided to head to NZ for a couple of months - off soon - so not really all bad). anyway, its been interesting but 95% all good really! and can't complain about spending mid Jan to mid March in NZ summer!!
anyway, will continue to lurk and put my oar in here and there, and good luck for everyone building for marathons in the spring or ultra/tri/duathlon glory!
hope to report a slow return to jogging in the spring myself, but we'll see.
