I’m too much of an optimist. When my surgeon told me about my surgery I only heard the truly amazing and awesome stories. Like the one about his patient who was out running a couple weeks after his surgery. It’s almost 2 months after my surgery, and I’m not ready to run yet. This is quite disappointing. I’ve also been significantly improving my nutrition for about the last 2 months and still seeing no results. I’d hoped to be ready to do a sprint tri in May, and it’s not looking reasonable. I keep wondering if I should just push through the pain, maybe this is something that I just have to live with my whole life.
To keep myself busy, and in an effort to stay sane during a pretty stressful time at work, I’ve started doing yoga 2 – 3 days a week. Yoga’s always been a big challenge to me. Being still is not easy, and I really struggle with downward dog, and the poses that put your body weight on hands and knees.
What I’m really struggling to figure out right now is how I take this to the next level. How do I finally get weight to start coming off? How do I stay on the right path for triathlon season? Or do I call this season a scratch?
