        Needs more cowbell!

          From the "it's all relevant dept.": I can't wait to get my cast on Friday.  This splint blows.

          Kirsten - aka "Auntie Kirsten"

          '14 Goals:

          • 2 olympic distance duathlons -- 6 days apart -- PR at least 1

          • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)


          Needs more cowbell!

             

            Fuckity.  Doc won't let me do shit until after 1/1--not even nowhere recumbent bike--then maybe I can get a short arm cast with waterproof liner. Roll eyesDisapproveCry

             

            So probably 5 weeks until I have any hope of doing any activity.  I'll be starting from 0 and trying to train for an early April HM.  I'll definitely have no goals beyond simply finishing.  Probably need to scale back on all of my goals for the first half of the year. Sleepy

              I am so sorry to hear that! You will overcome this injury, and you will do it in a rockin' orange cast. You are tough!

                That's a long cast for "just" a wrist.  Nice color, though.

                 

                Sorry you're having to go through this.  Try not to go too crazy.  Unless it helps.

                Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                  That's a nice break!  Thanks for posting pics.  Hope you heal well and quickly.

                  "C" is for cookie.  That's good enough for me.

                    Tough and crabby!  My #1 emphasis now is to try and drop at least 15#s just with diet (I've dropped 5ish this week, just cutting the carbs and losing a lot of the post injury swelling).  I lose so much easier when I'm not trying to fuel workouts.  If I weigh less it should make my return easier.

                      crazy = wine & beer?

                       

                      Long cast is to prevent ANY movement when my elbow would bend or twist.

                        Really? I don't get it. Casual spinning on a stationary recumbent isn't much different than walking except for the fact that it would be easier to keep your arm isolated. Did the doc give you a reason? I wonder what the next doc would say?

                         

                        I assume your doc didn't tell you not to walk so why not walk the hell out of your 5 weeks. Find hills and stairs. Do it outside and you won't get your cast as stinky. It will keep your arm warm.

                         

                        BTW, casts really suck and it could be twice as bad. Right now my son is living through six weeks of two casts at once. Nobody gets a good night's sleep. Forget Christmas. We're looking forward to getting rid of the damn casts. December 17 can't come soon enough.

                          Oh, x...poor kiddo. Sad

                           

                          Yeah, I don't get my doc's reasoning at all. Confused  As long as roads are dry I probably will take walks.  It's better than nothing.

                            Yeah, it's been a rough 5 weeks. He gets to miss four days of school and go to Disney next month. 

                             

                            I'd have a hard time not doing something and would probably disobey. Last winter I fell and got a handful of stitches. When the doctor asked if I had any questions I skipped over everything I should have asked and asked if it was a problem to do the race I had planned tomorrow. He said go ahead, just don't trip.

                             

                            Knitting needles work great.
