..the various entries over the past few weeks, and of course, glad to see the skating faithful are as enthusiastic as ever. The events/distances some of you are doing have my sincerest admiration.

I have been progressing very nicely, walking twice a day, 1 1/2 to 2 miles each time. There are minor setbacks, but considering it'll be 4 weeks post-surgery this coming Monday, I feel very blessed to be where I am. I can assure any and all of you that if you should have to undergo any type of major medical procedure, your cardiovascular conditioning from skating/biking/whatever will pay enormous dividends during the recovery phase, both physically and psychologically.

Skate Safe,

Hope You Are Well Jack

Hey Jack, it's great to hear from you. I confess that while away I've been remiss in keeping up with you. Please feel free to give us daily updates if you would like, or less often, no pressure, but know that we find your progress important and interesting to us. Many out there in Googland are going through what you have, or will, and some of us may, too. You lead the way for us, Jack, you show us how skating helped you make it through this as a strong person, physically and mentally. I'm glad you're getting out for exercise, and hope you have some mobility by car, too. If you are needing anything, please give us a call and we'll try to help. And maybe we'll even take the trouble to call you first! We'll miss you out skating until you're there; then we'll miss you when you leave us behind! Skateylove Amigo, Blake

Glad to hear it!

Jack! I'm so glad you're making steady progress. Thanks for the update. It's great to know all that cardio training is good for something and that it carries over for recovery time too. Time flies. 4 weeks already! Wow.

Thanks for Checking In, Jack

I'll add my thanks for the update. It's good to hear you're making progress.Those twice-daily walks sounds like a good program. I'll bet most folks would improve their fitness a whole lot doing just that. I'm fighting to work out even 3 or 4 times a week, and wonder sometimes about the tradeoffs between intensity--requiring recovery--and getting out there more often.


Hope you'll keep on keeping us posted, and I'll try to get out to visit sometime in the next few days.
