Well it has been some time since my last post.
I am currently in St Louis Missouri and ahve been for several weeks.
We are now 6 months post laminectomy and discectomy and I am still having bunches of pain but I think I am continue to ignore and still attempt to enjoy life.
Sitting in a chair still hurts the most, as does just about anything else, but I shall persevere.
My triathloning, although no where near what it once was is slowly coming around and I have been able to implement some decent hill rides in my bike rides.
I haven't been swimming since coming down here, I think it is easily my best event and I still average just over one minute per 100m so I am not overly worried if I lose some of that.
I am running pretty well although slower than once upon a time. I am averaging about 5/min per km which is much better than once upon a time. My rides are going fairly well but I still need to lose a few more pounds to get under riding weight.
So that's it for this minute and I am certain I will continue to be in pain but I guess I should just suck it up and continue my life as nothing is wrong, no matter the pain.
