Easy spin on the indoor trainer, heart rate always takes quite a while to pick up in the mornings.

Cycling (indoor trainer) 20:00 [3] 12.0 km (1:40 / km)

For the first time since the scope two sessions in one day, pushed pretty hard too, at the end of the hard effort could feel the knee a little bit around where the scars are. Probably be good to have another couple of easy days before I double up again.

Cycling (indoor trainer) 20:00 [2] 10.0 km (2:00 / km)

an easy spin this morning, trying to work out what I can do to catch up to Jose.... I refuse to lower myself to logging walking or stretching/strengthening though.

Cycling (exercise bike) 20:00 [3] 11.0 km (1:49 / km)

Back into the gym at Rydges Southpark, tried to change the channel on the tv but it only had Sky News. Still got to hear 20 minutes about Shane Warne announcing his retirement tomorrow.

Cycling (exercise bike) 20:00 [2] 10.0 km (2:00 / km)

Luckily the Rydges South Park in Adelaide has an exercise bike so I got in my 20 minutes.

Cycling (indoor trainer) 20:00 [2] 10.0 km (2:00 / km)

Knee felt better again so pushed a bit harder from 14-18 minutes and then 'cooled down' for 2 minutes spinning at the end. Jose's gonna try and chase me down this week so i hope there is an exercise bike at my hotel in adelaide because I'm not keen to get up at 5am to try and fit in a ride before I head out the the airport.

Cycling (indoor trainer) 20:00 [2] 10.0 km (2:00 / km)

Knee felt a bit better again today. Definitely no clicking and catching like before the operation. I think 20 min is pretty close to the max I would be wanting to do at the moment.

Saturday Dec 16, 2006 #

Cycling (indoor trainer) 20:00 [1] 9.0 km (2:13 / km)

I'm back! This is all I am allowed to do for a little while along with a bit of stuff in the pool. Knee felt pretty good, to be honest probably better than when i was cycling on the road before the surgery.

Surgery (Arthroscope) 2:00:00 [0]

Not a very strenuous session, seemed to pass almost in a blur, I started at 11:30 and next thing i knew it was 1:30....

Surgeon seemed pretty happy with himself, found a large lateral osteophyte which was impinging my acl (and removed it) and also cleaned up the cartilage which according to the nurse was "a mess". Apparently i talked to the surgeon in recovery but couldn't remember it at all so called him when i got home. He said my knee should have a big improvement. I'll be stoked if its as good as it has been for the last 8 years, the prospect that it could be better is pretty exciting.

I walked out of the hospital which is pretty promising and managed to avoid throwing up altogether let alone over Kelly.

All in all probably the most important session I have done this year.
