Checking in

Howdy.

It's been nearly six months since the last time I posted. Thought I'd drop in and let you know I'm still around. I read many of your blogs still, posting a rare comment here and there. Life's been busy, but I haven't felt like talking about it hence the lack of posts. The one thing I haven't been busy with is running of any sort. I've been a total sloth monster before, during and after the holidays. Although at least now I have a reason for it.



This photo was taken early Tuesday morning. It's my leg. I've undergone a minor surgical procedure to sort out the circulation in my left leg. I'm going to be a bit gimpy for a few weeks, but am planning a return to increased athletic activity in March. I want to run again so badly. 2012 was another year of little running and feeling blah. I don't want 2013 to be a repeat of that. Well, at least the 11 remaining months of it.

So once I can take the bandages off and am walking normally again, I'm going to get back to working out and hopefully posting my bitchy whiny commentary for your reading pleasure.

Till then, I'll keep reading your blogs in relative silence and envying your ability to run. You lucky bastards.

Crap. You were my excuse --"well, Xenia didn't update her blog, why should I?"

Hope you get de-gimped soon!

Yikes! I hope you get to feeling better soon and I'm so glad it was only "minor." :-/

Ouch! After a really down year, things are starting to look up for me this year. [I give it a month before it becomes another suckfest.]

Holy crap! Sending some healing vibes your way :)

Wow that doesn't sound like fun at all! If you're not posting, you should at least be partying too much to write anything. Drunk and naked I could understand. Circulation surgery seems like crap to me. Heal up soon!

Viper said...

That doesn't look too bad ...

Heal fast. Cheers!

Well, if you are looking for a running goal, I am moving to Bath next month for a lecturer position and I am trying to hunt down some people to do the Hadrian's Wall Relay. Yay for running across England!

That doesn't look like any fun at all.
But just think! Imagine how bitchy and whiny the commentary will be if you're still confined. You can work out all your frustrations and we might learn some new words.
It won't use up much of your envy store to envy my "running".
Get well soon!

Suck it up, Buttercup! That looks to me like just a minor scratch. Register for a 10K, already!!!

Pink toenail polish? You're right, this is a disaster.
