OK, I am SORRY.
But, this I have to flaunt.

This is per my Garmin MARQ Explorer, which I wear 24×7
from a few minutes ago.

This, i.e., 42, was from 2.5 months ago.

It was ’46’ a month before that.


I had my quadriceps tendon repair surgery,
at ‘
Frisbie Memorial Hospital‘ —
performed by Dr. Charles Blitzer
of ‘Seacoast Orthopedics
on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

There was no pain to talk about
— throughout, from surgery to now.


Yes, 6.5-months post knee-surgery. I am trying to walk at least 7-miles most days. I also do some indoor cycling. Given that I live in a 4-story house, on the side of a hill, I cover a lot of elevation every day and average 52 floors climbed (i.e., 520′) a day. Today it was 86 (860′).

Well, I take all this with a pinch of salt. You have to.

SMILE.

It was ’46’ two-weeks earlier!

Yes, I am walking and using an indoor cycle like ‘crazy’ to get back to ‘fitness’.

Well, I am NOT taking this too seriously. I could still keel over and die from a heart attack today. So, I am more sanguine than others (and yes, there was a ‘pun’ in there).

Well, I had to share. But, moving on ….

SMILE.

I am 65-years old, 66 in September. So, this reading today chuffed me up no end, especially since I am still in recovery from major knee surgery. Just 7-weeks ago I was still on crutches. I still walk with a cane (since it helps, though I can walk without one).

Yes, no question, the knee surgery spurred me to new heights. My VO2 Max was ~36 before surgery and I was nearly 20 pounds heavier! Yes, I lost weight while recovering — mainly by totally revamping my diet. That helped. I have only run once after surgery — and that was last week. I ran 3 miles with 800′ of elevation carrying 11 pounds in weights. Felt a few ‘tinges’ in the knee was decided to lay off running for another few weeks. Walking at least 3.5 miles a day and then making sure to clock at least 10K steps a day. Today I did 16K. So, it all helps.

I am happy. Would have preferred not to have busted my quad tendon. But, it was a wake-up call.

So, there is hope … SMILE.
