So this week was my 3 month surgical checkup concerning my hernia surgery. The one thing about being injured for me anyways, especially since this injury required surgery, I have been extremely paranoid about every little unknown twinge, pulling, and sharp pain around that area, I guess what we guys call our "Manhood" area.
So after waiting an hour to see the doc. Doc pokes around and prodded me.
Okay like Ouchhhh...
Made me turn and cough more than a man should ever do in his lifetime. He says I'm fine and free to do whatever I want to do. (Like getting medical clearance has stopped me so far)
Bubba: "Doc, I sometimes feel pain". I don't want to go through this again...
Doc: "you are pretty active, workout all the time"
Bubba: "but, Yeah"
Doc: "you should be fine, could be a muscle thing, not
sure, it should be constant, not sporadic, if you want
to come back, see me in 6 months or even sooner if you
Bubba : "Okay"
Then my 10 minutes are up.. So for a little while longer, I can tell my mom, my Doc cleared me, while she tells me why I should just relax and watch some TV instead of doing these things she still does not understand the reason why.
With the big snowstorm passing through and another couple of inches on Saturday morning, hopefully get to do a little bit of trail running while the horse crap is still covered over.
So, looking at my run schedule, a recovery run week for me with a shorter weekend long run schedule (2 hours/13miles & 2.5/16miles). Switching to a swim focus for the next 6 weeks. As my 6 week bike focus finished, I think I averaged around 40 to 60 miles on the Computrainer each week. Not great, I actually wanted to do more, but sometimes I just ran out of time. Plus my ass does really seem to hurt more sitting on a bike trainer for some reason.
Eight more weeks to my 50 mile ultra and counting.
Hmm, I should be saying "Oh crap", by now. But if I can do one or more 50k runs before than I think I will be just fine.
It doesn't snow in April right? If so I guess I will be ready for it.
