I've got a fever...
Don't sneeze. That hurts.
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

And finally, after way too many days -- a #2.

She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.
Back in business baby! I had my first post-op "workout", a 1.5 mi walk this morning. Felt pretty good, and the steep hill actually made my heart rate climb enough to make me feel good about it. Resisted the temptation to try to jog a little, which is big for me. I still feel like I've shrunk about 3 inches, because I can't easily stand completely straight up.
Feels good to put something in the log other than "Hernia rest day".
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Roads were made for journeys...
So naturally, I went 4.3.
Ok, this should be my last hernia report, unless something bad happens. So no news = good news.
Went on my first actual run today. It's been 12 days the surgery. I started walking last Wed. Doc said, "Go ahead and start jogging, nice and easy. Maybe a mile, mile-and-a-half to start out with." So naturally, I went 4.3.
The good thing is that I hurt in all the right places, and none of the wrong. And the right places didn't hurt too bad either. It was a much slower run than usual, but that's to be expected. The only bad thing is that I ran stooped forward, since everything in the tummy region is still tight, thus preventing me from running in my normal upright posture. I can imagine this wreaking havoc with my back and form if it goes on for too long, but I think it'll get a little better each day.
