Following an appointment with my surgeon and review of scans, xrays, blood tests etc it was decided to that an attempt would be made to insert a kidney stent and a colonoscopy was also to be performed. Surgery was scheduled for 20 Dec.
This caused a flurry of phone calls and emails and much angst as we were supposed to fly out for our daughter's wedding on that day.
I coped with this news by plugging in the iPod and going for a long, long run along Casuarina Beach.
Where I'm at today:
165 days out from Ironman 70.3 Hawaii my comeback progress update reads like this:
Longest swim: 500m
Longest ride: 29km
Longest run: 1.3km
This morning's run/walk was also done along Casuarina Beach and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience (and the breeze).
