I am having surgery tomorrow to correct a deviated septum. While the surgery is minor, it is painful – worse than that – I am not allowed to run for two weeks or cycle for a week. The upside for me is that my deviated septum has gotten so bad that it restricts my ability to breathe in while I am doing distance running or cycling on hills or sprints.
I scheduled my surgery for two days after I ran the Georgetown, Colorado to Idaho Springs, CO half marathon. I finished in 1 hour 46 minutes and 26 seconds, not bad for someone who turned 68 this past April. I am looking forward to an even better time once I can run again. I am thinking of doing the Denver Half in October, before returning to Austin.
I will most likely not be blogging but I look forward to receiving your posts. Endeavor to persevere!
