8.5 month update, and the last for a while

November 17th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Had my semi-monthly doctors appointment two days ago. Got some more x-rays, which looked excellent. The bone is almost completely healed, and the doctors said my strength is outstanding. So for now, I’m going to continue training on my own and not go back to the hospital until March (one year post-injury)!

Training is going well. I do weight training about 5 days a week, and cardio about 3-4. For now, cardio still consists of the stationary bike, but I’m trying to take things slow (and safe) and also build up my endurance before I start any impact training. I’ve been doing 20 minutes on the bike, while keeping my heat rate between 170-180. It feels awesome. Whenever I get tired I remind myself one of my favorite Marine Corps lines, “pain is weakness leaving the body.”
