Strength and Conditioning 55:00 [1]

My last hospital based training session. Going to miss the group, although a fair few of them I guess I'll see again if I attend the Fredrikstad community training.
The physio got me to half lead with her today, which was pretty hilarious. We had half the room following each of us, so that people weren't stepping the wrong way and colliding with each other. Which has seemed to be a problem each week...there's always someone that decides to step to the right instead of the left...(I may also have been a culprit at times)

Running 10:00 [4]

...followed by my end of program test...the beep test. Very odd experience, running the beep test down a narrow hospital hallway, but there you go! Only had to dodge people a couple of times, and thankfully on the lower levels of the test. Hardest was listening out for the beep that was playing off the physio's phone.
So I made it to level 10,2. And as everyone feels with the beep test(once they've recovered), I felt I could have gone further. But eh, I'm happy just to see where I'm at.
So on the heart patient scale I am "Superior" for my sex and age...I looked up a regular scale and on a regular person scale I am "Normal" haha. I'll take Normal for now! :)
The physio thus stated that I am physically rehabilitated, and free to go climb mountains in NZ. Which I fully intend to do, as of next week :D

But I'm not simply being kicked out of rehab. the plan is to continue with the community group stuff, mainly cos it's fun, and to get in touch with the heart rehab research group in Oslo. Plus I get to come back to Moss for another beep test in 1 years time. We'll see if I'm still normal then ;)

Today marks 6 months from my SCA. Amazing how much can happen in half a year eh.
I had my final meeting with the head Doctor at Riksen on Friday. My heart is now the best that it has ever been, and I've been cleared to go and live a healthy life as I like :) All going well, I won't be back for a check up at Riks until 2 years time :)
So the worst of the physical recovery is behind me, the next is to gradually get back to some physical shape, but most importantly, to find the right psychologist to work with to deal with accepting what has happened and move forward from it.
7 PM

Football 50:00 [1] 3.0 km (16:40 / km)

Football training in the snow. Made things a bit fun. Eventually we got sent home 30mins early cos the snow was coming down too heavily and making it impossible to control the ball. Was an experience, the balls were kind of picking up little halos of ice/slush, which made ball control a bit tricky :)

Strength and Conditioning 50:00 [2]

Final hospital based circuit training. Really going to miss the group. Will see what alternative circuit trainings are on offer, either at the gym or with cardio clubs.
5 PM

Strength and Conditioning 45:00 [1]

My lift home from Moss 'conveniantly' ended up at HSK strength training. So I opted in for the warm-up...and ended up staying the whole hour. Although efforts were generally token and I spent most of the session lying on my back on the mat and chatting to Iliana.

xc sking 1:33:00 [3] 10.2 km (9:07 / km) +290m 7:59 / km

Went out alone today. was going alright and really enjoyed it. But got really tired toward the end, which meant more falls (both intentional and unintentional).

highlight of the day was when i did a purposeful bail (i was going faster than I liked down a hill) in front of a couple of ladies, who then asked "Did you fall because of your wax?" To which I replied too truthfully "Nope, I just fell cos I'm bad at skiing!"
Turned out they were from the Netherlands, so they sympathised with me!

In any case, I think having to concentrate so much on what I was doing was a good thing. Didn't think about heart rate or surgery aches and pains once.
