Perhaps you already figured it out, but I am definitely a dork! An unrealistic one at that. Honestly, I don't consider it a negative or as putting myself down. It's simply descriptive.
The last couple of days I created these fantasies of maybe participating in a triathlon yet this year. First, at the end of August with the Lakes Country Triathlon up in Baxter and then even thinking, "Hey, I could just fake the swim on the Chisago sprint" (instead of racing the 1/2).
So, I saw the surgeon yesterday. Everything is healing great. But due to the type of fractures I have, I have what is called an "unstable shoulder". I'm unstable!
So what can I do? Hey, I can lift my own arm now. A little thing called Active Range of Motion.
FOR A MONTH!
That's all for a whole month. No weight, no pushing, no pulling or anything. No nothing except moving it. After a month I can lift anything under a whole 2 pounds for the following month. Then finally at month 3, I will be able to start increasing weight.
I knew this would be long, but man, this is truly depressing!
I CAN RUN!
