Update on Goal for the Year

Well, I had really planned on getting back in some semblance of shape and competing in Masters track events this fall. Unfortunately, those plans have taken a bit of a hit. I found out today that I have a small belly button hernia. It doesn't hurt a whole lot, but it probably will require some sort of surgery. So that will put me behind a few weeks in my training. I have a consultation with the surgeon tomorrow, so I'll have a better idea of what is in store.

There is a silver lining. If I compete this year, I'll be one of the older runners in the 50-54 age group. If I have to wait until next year, I'll be one of the younger ones in the 55-60 age group. So, maybe it will be for the best.

Hope the surgery (if needed) is minor and recovery is quick. I admire your desire to get into shape.

Thanks Bob. I found out this morning that I actually have two hernias. They can take care of both at the same time, but it will slow things down a bit more.

Hope you are back at the gym by spring.
