More set-backs

Sun - Bike on Trainer, 1 hour, 13.3 miles
Mon - Lift: Chest, Bicep, Tricep, & Shoulders and Hip exercises
*Since the return to running, my knees have been hurting, that's why I put the hip exercises back in there. I think my form isn't so great from sitting around for too long.*
Tue - Run on Treadmill, 3.5 miles, 37:12
Wed - Bike on Trainer, 1 hour, 14.1 miles
Thur - Run on indoor track at Nat, 3 miles, 29:54
Fri - Bike on Trainer, 50 min, 10.5 miles
Sat - Run on Treadmill, 5 miles, 57:20

My return to running and cycling is slow. I tire easily, and I seem to get cramps easily.

I want to get back in the pool, but I'm worried about a cut on my leg.

See, part of time off from working out was due to moles being removed by the dermatologist. I had stitches in my right thigh and lower back for 2 weeks. My thigh spot has not healed correctly. Stitches have been out for a week and it still bleeds and hurts a little. I tried to get to a doc yesterday, but of course everyone was closed for the weekend - and probably tomorrow, too, for the holiday.

When I signed up for the full Cleve Mary, I thought all was fine. Turns out the mole on my back isn't good and needs worked on again. Two more weeks of stitches and no working out. Plus, who knows about my leg, until I see a doctor on Tues at least.


  1. Oh Kim, I am sorry you are having such a rough time. Sending healthy vibes your way.

  2. Dang, I am sorry for the set-backs, it always seems to be that if one problem starts, that more problems follow suit - a very frustrating thing. Do not worry though, you still have time for training for the marathon, just take the time you need to heal! I hope these are the last stitches!

  3. Kim - hang in there! I am sorry about all the mole issues - I have been there and it is so hard to be patient though the healing. I hope these are the last stitches too!
