Donnerschweer 2018 Training Log


You could even get a third serving.
I really hope that leg gets better a some point, for now it seems to have been bad forever.


Friday morning gym

My leg was to pissy to make it any where before that.

Decided to work the leg to keep it un happy in hope that the ortho will see some swelling.

Tomorrow morning I see the ortho surgeon. I want a divorce from the plate in the leg.

If I am not too drained from the hospital visit I will have a chest day after.


Whoo hoo the hardware is going out! Estimated wait time 2 weeks to 6 months :scream:

Me: my leg hurt a lot
Ortho look at the leg: that is not normal
Me: what do you propose?
Ortho: that is not normal
Me: Can taking the plate out help
Ortho: that may not help or it may help
Me: any other proposition
Ortho: that does not look good but taking the plate out may not solve the problem at 100%

Can I say that he drives me nut. Now I have to see my GP for different pain meds or an other option during the wait.
And yes, the call will be max 72 hours a head!

Gym later tonight with the BF.


And dang! That’s a big range for the ETA! I hope it comes sooner than later.
