This are starting to get back on track. I start holidays tomorrow and don't go back till July 20th so a much deserved break.

The A/Cst RCMP training went well. Qualifying for the 12 gauge shotgun and the 9mm Smith & Wesson was literally a blast. The OC Spray (Oleoresin Capsicum aka pepper spray) was not so fun though; a feeling I can't even explain for pain. Now wait for all the paperwork to go through, be sworn in, uniform and then to start patrolling.

Fence complete last weekend. This weekend I will finish up all that I can for landscaping and do the rest as I can. Have to paint the new fence plus all of the other fence on my property (have two lots). Then have to stain the deck. Will be a busy summer holiday but has to be done.

Not all work doing holiday. Daughter and I are going to Transformers on Monday afternoon; it is our thing since seeing the first one. Possibly later next week we will take off to Banff or Kelowna for 3-4 days. Going on a motorcycle trip the third week through BC (British Columbia); that should be fun and relaxing ... and adrenalizing.

Started to get back into my weight lifting again two weeks ago and really enjoying it. Have to make up some ground as hadn't worked out for 5 weeks but body seems to adapt really well.

Health is going okay; though I do get light headed from time to time. Keep in regular touch with my doctor to make sure all is okay.

Just thought I'd give an update.

Dereck, I am not on here a lot, but I do read and keep track of my friends.

Enjoy your holiday.

well, I have become more mobile on my crutches as I have got used to them, have had the (28) staples out leaving me with a 'frankenknee' to be proud of, and am 9 days away from a medical assessment which I am hoping will give me the ok to start regaining range of motion in my leg (currently have it locked straight in a very cool cyber-brace).

'Training' over the last 6 weeks has involved using a bullworker to keep my upper body ticking over as best I can, and trying to get competent on the crutches.

I have ordered a 'chest expander_ so I can break the anterior dominance of bullworker exercise and get some back engagement.

Not exciting, but you do what you can.

Hope the recovery is still going well Cord; all my best as I know where you are coming from.

Started back last week going hard. Monday, Wednesday and Friday is weight lifting. Tuesday and Thursday is running track and am joined by my wife; though we run at different speeds but nice that she is coming which motivates her which motivates me. And another thing we do together.

Weightlifting is a A1, B2, A3, B4, A5 and B6 format where each day is something different. The "A" days are same muscle groups just different exercises, as well the "B" days are the same muscle groups but different exercises.

I'm watching the carbohydrates more as well; taking in slightly less. Am also upping the protein and for my 2:30 meal I am taking a scoop of protein as well after my workout. In regards to eating I may have to look at staying away from eating cereal in the morning; which I do and have for so many years. It was discovered in Canada that our cereal contains 5 times the salt that our US counterparts do. The Canadian government is even going to get involved in this matter. I wonder why 5 times?

It is a heavy workload and will require breaks from time to time in order to fully recover. I'm tired but it feels nice to get this stuff done and the running will help burn get me to look the way I want and help to show off more muscle.

All and all with turning 41 this year, it is nice to know that since lifting in my later 20's that I'm still at it. Let's hope that I can keep the pace.

Good work dude :-) Fantastic that you are back on track (literaly and metaphoricaly).

Remember to increase the time you spend stretching your legs, hips, and lower back, now that you are running. Will really help long term :-)

Will do Cord. I probably could have stretched better then I did yesterday but as I was running when my calves started to tighten up, I pulled to the side and did better stretching to alleviate them.

Now when I say run I should clarify. Warming up I started with a jog. There were times I needed to actually stop due to the tightness so walked it off. Then I did periodic sprinting to jogging to walking and then started over. I only was out for about 25 minutes from the time I started till stopped. By the end I was full out sprinting at the fastest pace I could then coming to a stop and walking till I could get breathing controlled and then bursting again; always trying to beat the amount of time/distance I did last time. Of course I will have to build into this more but it definitely will get easier as I go.

Have you started any physio yet Cord? I suspect they will work on the mobility and strengthening. Or perhaps knowing as much as you do that will be something you will do yourself. I hope recovery goes well for you and you are back on both feet and doing the stuff you want again.

Still got to keep the knee locked straight till next appointment (this friday). At that point, the next stage is to work purely on regaining ROM (I already know it will go to around 15 degrees with no impingment at all, as I have already done some very gentle mobilisation just to see). That is slated to take 4-6 weeks. Then at that point I start physio. Just got to be patient. Currently eyeing up new bicycles. Gonna treat myself when back on 2 legs smile

Get better Cord; one day at a time.

Had a good run yesterday. I changed things up a bit. I went around the track in a light jog about 6 times and then did sprints on the long parts and jogged or walked on the turns to help recover. We ran for about 25 minutes including my cool down walk. I'm enjoying it; who knew. (track is 335 meters I believe)

Weight lifting going good too; A3 workout tonight. Hope I can keep up the pace of 5 days a week doing this stuff. Will look at a break at 6 weeks to recover and will also listen to my body.

nice one Dereck smile

Specialist was really pleased with me today. Now have leg brace set to allow 30 degrees of flexion. Got to work it via weight bearing and extensor movements for 2 weeks, then go to 60 degrees for 2 weeks, then 90 deg. and onward. Looking to have full ROM in 6-8 weeks. Assessment today was to see how much base strength I was starting with having had the leg atrophy through lack of use for 6 weeks. Even with such inactivity, I am able to hold the knee locked straight while raising the leg from the hip. This is something that most cant do for another 3-4 weeks apparently, so I am well ahead of the game. Nice to get some positive feedback, and start the rehab ball rolling smile
