Would you like some cheese with that?

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…

    But you are working the other muscles and that is all that counts. Your wife is a lucky, lucky gal.
