The purpose of this blog is to attempt to run 365 days in a row to benefit LIVESTRONG. With the help of great nutrition advice, a solid running team, and the proper equipment, I hope to achieve this mission. The MINIMUM run is 20 minutes per day.

Well we are already working on week 2 of recovery from the surgery which is exciting. The doc said I could literally run the next day and it couldn't hurt a thing which y'all know from the last post, So I waited a couple days and started the jog process on Monday. Each day was easier and easier and faster and by Saturday I could do pick ups and not even feel a thing. That is just amazing the surgery advances that they have done in this day and age that you can bounce back like that. I mean cleared to run in a day? Holy moly. That was just too crazy for me to comprehend but by Tuesday it made sense. I was also required to walk 5 times a day to help wake up the system and keep things moving and help push the C02 out and it makes a huge difference with recovery. This actually became something to look forward to and was actually kind of reviving so I included the daily total in the daily recaps. I have been always staying in comfort and by Sunday I ran with one of my best buds Jason Faerman on the trails and didn't even feel like I had undergone surgery.

I know some of you know my passion for bar method and I have been banned from that until May 20th! Really sucks but following the doctors orders since as much of a shocker as I have full reins to run is to people I really do listen when I am told no. It is not worth it to do what the doc doesn't prescribe. I think I will follow the docs that went to medical school and have 8 diplomas all over their office. Sorry but it has funny to watch everyone tell you what you should and shouldn't do and all I can say is "where did you go to medical school?" Anyway, back to my lack of bar method, it will be that much more fun to see my friends on May 20th. Actually on April 19th, was my year anniversary from the tuck tuck squeeze squeeze and I cannot even believe how much my bod has transformed in a year and how different my strength and flexibility is in my hips, and legs and how much power it has given me. See y'all soon and can't wait to see the new studio!!
