A fun event at Fort Leavenworth. Four days after eye surgery, so I was not allowed to run, but they said walking was ok. Lots of uphill, so I stopped a few times so my heart rate wouldn't get up too high. Three mistakes, two minor, one major. Altogether, just walking, I probably lost almost 15 minutes. I had to backtrack on one because of a fence, and backtrack on another because I couldn't find a trail where the map indicated one. My big mistake, and I know better (but mess up and don't do better) was taking a wrong trail, and going a ways before figuring out it was wrong and having to go back and going the right way. I just totally lost control of where I was and where I was going. Otherwise, route choices ok, and it was great to get out and do something, since I have just been sitting around since last Tuesday. Next Tuesday I can start working out again.

An interesting thing about my eyes. They both see stuff ok, but the colors are different. The right eye sees more yellow, and the left (the one operated on) doesn't see the yellow as much. Like the left sees a red car, but the right sees a red-orange car. I don't know which is correct.

Elray had anethesia yesterday to get her teeth cleaned, etc., and she was really sick several times last night. Also lethargic and didn't eat. She wasn't too keen on getting back in the car today, so I just ambled along with her and let her do lots of sniffing. She was happy to accept a cookie when we got home, so her and I must be healing fine.

(rest day)

Saw my eye surgeon this morning. All good, except I have to up my steroid drops from 2x to 4x per day this week. I have three different eye drops I'm using and they have different schedules. They gave me a cute little chart to keep track of things.

Since I finally made the trip to KC parks & rec on Friday (they wouldn't answer my emails) and found out Hodge Park is a no go on Dec. 7, I called Heartland, and they couldn't have been nicer. Waiting for the confirmation call now.

No bending, straining?, or lifting until next Wednesday. That means no 9Round or workout with Jared this week. Boo hoo.

9Round 32:00 [4]
ahr:119 max:142 shoes: INOV-8 Alltrain 215

A tough workout today. Lots of time in the red and yellow. This week's CHOW was 6 punches on the bag plus jump onto the step. I did 31 which really got my heart rate going, but, of course, this was on the lower step.
