Start “Rolling”soon as injuries have heals but Illness snuck in. January 27, 2017

A little,while ago I was finishing the rehab and muscle rebuild in the current bad knee and was ready to get started with the return to the road.    BUT ………

That little chest cold started grabbing my breath and grew like a gathering storm. Small sputtering hacks  became loud, long growling rumbles . Easy walk from door to car took all of the breath I had.

Visit to doctor id’d a bad cold and recommended / prescribed meds and diet.

That did not help much and the cough/ lungs got heavier and another trip “gave” me bronchitis and different treatment . It started to work for the lungs but bronchitis is a tough bugger.

I then developed a painful rash on my lower legs and some of th mds for my lungs were useful and soaking and other topical treatments have been helpful. I plan to be healthy and ready to roll in a short time and need to decide what to do.

1. It will all be easy and be ALL WALKING for a few weeks at minimum.

2. It will include some muscle building , but only body weight exercises.

3. Focus on necessary weight loss will dictate when any extended running can begin.

4. Will investigate local gyms for best one to supportfitness and weight goals.

5. ULTIMATELY-Strive to have fun…so I do this forever.

I found this article / pin about returning after injury.   Some good information and guidance.


This is a simple chart for how it might be done. Starting from nothing and running in a reasonable time.

Walking ( and Running) and Weight Loss July 22, 2015

Recent reflections in the mirror were quite horrifying and a plan to workout – walking and running- has been hatched.

A leg injury and relapse with the injury has resulted in some ugly weight gain and a matching reduction in strength and fitness. I have also felt sluggish and had some challenges moving during the work day.  I am an longer physically energetic and active.

My knees have some history from earlier team sports injuries but they have done well with running, but this injury put me on my butt and the knees no longer had as much activity and use and the additional weight placed a lot of stress on them

I have long been a an of the daily run and hope to get back to that. Of course my run is actually a combo of Walk-Run as promoted by (Olympian) Jeff Galloway in his books and now websites . In the world of fitness and calorie burning- walking roughly equals running….the biggest difference is that running usually burns more calories faster….much like driving the same  F-150 pickup truck burns more gas when driving 65 mph v. 42mph.

I have a target weight goal that will take a long term plan with careful and smart eating combined with safe exercise and a reasonable expectation of the timing for the results

      Some quickly found articles and posts on the topic. Lots of good stuff…..
