Oooh, sorry to hear it. Recovery and rest are the two hardest things to do. Thinking good thoughts for your surgery, recovery, and that you'll be back stronger than ever.

Bummer. Best wishes for a successful surgery and quick recovery.

In the spirit of lemons to lemonade: what a great time to focus on your core! I am always putting that crap off for other workouts. You could come out looking like UFTriGator!

A friend put it in

A friend put it in perspective for me the other day: if we weren't injured, we wouldn't be serious athletes.

All the best for you on Weds., Anton. You're already halfway healed with your positive attitude.
(Had to laugh at your reference to only now having time to learn about your HR monitor - I could totally relate!)

You are yet another member of this site that baffles me with your positive attitude. Don't lose touch because you're not training. We need your voice on trifuel. Rest up buddy.

Damn! That's a great idea!
Did pick up some stretch cords for swim training...found some exercises I can do with the kettle bells while sitting down and without stressing the foot. Can keep up with core without stressing the foot...
This will be interesting!
Thanks guys for your kind words...
The only REAL bummer about this is that my custom made bike will be ready to two weeks...so I'll get to stare at it for another four at least!
Netflix here I come!

Well I guess you'll miss a training trip(maybe) up to Lake Placid.
If you change your mind I'll bring some duct tape for your ankle.

Yup! Follow up exam is Wednesday and I'll know then but the doctor has already told me after the bandages come off he'll cast me till the last week of June. It's a non-load bearing injury so I can't even drive.
Bummer.
