OK… so I’m looking for progress here… I am still very sore and uncomfortable. I can’t sit for extended periods. I can’t stand for extended periods. I can’t stretch too much. I can’t walk for long distances. I can’t run. I didn’t get that spin bike (it went for $220). There is a good inch of solid ice on everything and when I slip when I’m walking… IT HURTS.
Anyway, enough bitching… It does no good. How about some positives.
I am still lifting and have gone up from two sets to three sets of 8 and am slowly increasing my weights again. I was surprised how much strength I had lost from last year when I stopped lifting. It’s coming back though. I also don’t have that “just started lifting” pain I thought I would have. I did manage to walk for about 7 minutes, slowly, on the treadmill.
I got to play in the shop for a few days and built a sewing box for my lovely wife for Christmas, which is nearly done except for another coat of finish and a bit of sanding. I will post pictures of it at my other blog as soon as it is done. It was a fun project and I got to use just about every tool in the shop, so I’m happy… It’s just too bad there is no aerobic benefit in woodworking…
