I have exactly zero motivation for exercise right now. Despite the fact that I still have fairly good left arm and shoulder function, I have not spent one minute sweating or breathing hard since my LOTR 12 hour trainer marathon last weekend. I'm depressed about having rotator cuff surgery and then a long rehab.
Starting Monday, I won't be able to lay my left hand on a handlebar for 3 long months, although Bones says I can start aerobic exercise 72 hours after my surgery. We went with Big Jim to St. Aug's fish fry tonight, and he offered to take me around his 4 hour climbfest tomorrow, but I just don't have the heart. I never much liked Soulmate's Arc trainer, but I think I'll be seeing alot of it for a few months.
Soulmate has promised to help me pull on my socks and tie my shoes so we can go walking every day. Now there's a pleasant thought, especially with nicer weather coming. It'll keep my mind off of missing the GrandStay training rides. Maybe not.
Bagley swears he kept his fitness up last year after his horrific crash by walking every night with his wife, so if it's good enough for my buddy, it's good enough for me. Any ideas on how to keep the weight off while I can't put in the bike hours? Don't say Jenny Craig--that ain't gonna happen for Doc.
Guess I'll fire up the arc trainer in the morning and see how long I can work it until rigor mortis sets in. At least I've got a stash of pretty good movies banked. Just got to get a better sound system for my workout room...
