Weekend Recap

Is it Monday already? It’s been a bit of a whirlwind weekend. We met with several members of my wife’s running team on Friday. It was a post-post marathon celebration. A fine time was had by all.

Saturday we went to see a friend’s band (The Four Players). They RAWK!! I must admit, we planned to be supportive either way, but…wow, they sounded fantastic. I even…now, brace yourself for this one…danced. Apparently, my Achilles tendon is healing nicely. I didn’t have a full range of movements, but it was fairly close. This is only three months after my surgery, I might add.

Sunday I felt so good about the triumphant return to the dance floor, I decided to try some other activities on my “no no” list. I rode my bicycle. I only made it a couple of miles before the injured leg was screaming at me, but that was a couple of more miles than I thought I could do going into the weekend.

I’m supposed to wait a year before I return to Karate practice, but at this rate…I may be back to training by February. More importantly, I should be able to shred some serious wake by spring. I was more than a little concerned I would miss an entire wakeboarding season. As it looks now, I should be back to near normal (whatever that is) by the time the warm weather returns.

How was your weekend?

I am glad you had a "fun filled" weekend and was able to get back to doing the things you enjoy but as your mom I have to say just because it "feels" better does not mean it's "healed" please tkae it slow I would hate tp see you re-injure and be sitting on the sidelines watching everyone else have fun this summer.

You still make me hurt when I think about you doing anything physical. You don't want to re-injure yourself now.

But good for you, you dancing fool. :)
