I would guess the average person can hold hundreds of dates in their memory. I suppose I am no exception, but when it comes to dates of duration I can only readily spit out a few. These would include: 1) the number of years married to my amazing wife, 2) the age in months of my beautfiul daughter, 3) the number of years and months since my wife and I rededicated our lives to God, and 4) the number of weeks since my first surgery. Number four clearly pales in comparison to the other three, and I have been reminding myself everyday of the good fortune that surrounds me on a daily basis. With that said, I will report that PT has been going well and I am slowly gaining strength and stability back in my left leg. Minor pain still persists in the medial miniscus zone, but I am hopeful that formal running can resume within the next month. Clearly setbacks are inevitable and extreme mileage may be permanently on hold. This is not the prognosis I imagined for my running career at the relatively young age of 31, but I can't help but think that good will rise from this experience.
PT: Week 5
