Merry Christmas

One month later the leg is healing but the Black Knight walks slowly even if with no crutches. The problem is the knee that is painful and difficult to flex. I think that I will be able to start the running workouts in early february. However by monday I will begin to swim to recover the muscular strenght.In the photos you can see the long scar, very short compared to the one after the first surgery.

The black Black Knight Army's cat, always ready for an ambush, wishes a merry Christmas to all of you!

  3. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that your tree survived the tree climber!

    Best wishes as you get going with your swimming. That's the first step toward getting back to running - I can't even imagine how your adreneline must be pumping!

    Oh, and please excuse any misspellings, this runner is TIRED after chasing around 2 excited little kiddos on Christmas.

  10. Eeek! We strategists aren't used to seeing such wounds. That's why we offer to do the thinking for the army.

    Best wishes to you and your family in the coming year. May it be a little less eventful than this one.

  19. I see this same scar on my wife Lady Ihatetoast: Purple Maker. The battle ahead for running is a long one where an occasional retreat is necessary to win the battle.

    By the way, put some pants on!

    Seasons greetings and my best to you, your family and the army.
