3 months and doing GREAT!

Yesterday marked 3 months since my hip replacement #2. At the dojo, I worked out with everyone for half of the class time (total class time on Thursdays = 3.5 hours) and felt great. I had to remind myself every so often not to overdo it. I keep forgetting these days that I have all this metal and plastic in my hips. 🙂

I continue to bike a lot in addition to all the Karate. I bike about 60-70 miles in an average week. I have also been ramping up my calisthenics. I have no problem doing about 100 leg-lifts and 30+ pushups and/or 10+ chinups after I come home from my morning 10 mile bike ride.  I do other exercises throughout the day and Karate 6 days/week.

Things are definitely going great.
