Post Surgery

Tendon repaired. Call me lefty. Typing difficult. Starting to feel better about my condition. Hope to have full recovery. Dr says all went well in surgery. Only one tendon (of 3) was severed.

Bad News

I am now on a forced 8 week rest from training (running). This really hurts since I am registered for the Prague International Marathon on May 11, and also for the Burning River 100 the first weekend of August. I hurt my hand on Saturday, April 26, and it involved a severed tendon. The orthopedic surgeon that will repair the tendon tomorrow has told me, "NO STRENUOUS EXERCISE FOR AT LEAST 8 WEEKS, MAYBE MORE!" No Marathon in Prague. Technically, I could run Burning River 100, I just can't train for it. I am sad.
