It's been pretty delightful the last month or so because most of the college students are gone so it has been just me and a couple of diehards. I originally wrote "a couple of other diehards" and then I realized that I didn't want you to think I actually was a diehard. I am not. I am, however, incredibly serious about rehabbing my injury.
So about that injury. It is almost seven months since my surgery. I still limp most of the time, but I can do a lot. I walk for at least three miles every day and most days it's more like five or six (yes, I keep track on a pedometer). I work out at least three times a week doing a variety of punishing activities at the gym, including the exercise bike, the treadmill, and the elliptical, along with some light weightlifting focusing mostly for my lower half. I stretch, stretch some more, get up and walk around, and stretch some more. On my non-gym days, I try to do something, although that usually is just me goofing off with the Wii Fit Plus and attempting yoga poses I can no longer do, especially the dreaded Gate Pose and the stupid fucking I hate you Triangle Pose.
We got this gym membership long before my injury but I never used it until afterwards. I give it full credit for the progress I have made. But I still really hate the Triangle Pose.
