Hello all, I have had a little rest as I had my surgery last Friday. It went very well indeed and I actually want to marry my surgeon now because he has rectified so many of my issues. In case you were wondering I had severe nasal polyps, a collapsed sinus cavity and enlarged adenoids. All of which he has sorted, resulting in better breathing and sleeping properly for the first time in ages. I am under strict instructions to rest, avoid crowds and do no exercise for 2 weeks. However I just feel if I leave it much longer I am going to lose all the momentum that I have gained so I decided a mini-run today was in order. 12 minutes at 5.6k/hr, felt very easy. Plus about 15 mins on the bike. Not going mad, it was good to be in shiny-trendy gym! I am still amazed at some of the TINY TINY slim ladies that go in there. If I was that slim I would never be motivated to go to the gym (and therein lies the irony methinks). My nose hurt a little bit after the running, I know that exercise causes constriction of blood vessels and that's why I'm not supposed to exercise, but I think a little bit like this for the next week is ok. I know my limits Hope you have all been running on in my absence, I look forward to joining in again!
