Time to Get Back, Slowly

In many of my past blog posts I've written about training and conditioning based on my personal experience. This blog post is no different.

Recently, I had fairly major surgery on my knee from an injury I incurred last winter. After two months of being unable to much of anything, I am ready to get moving again. Unlike earlier posts where I was writing from the vantage point of being healthy and strong, today I am starting at square one.

Something I've always known, but what…
