I've had a couple of quiet days working from home. I have a monster amount of materials to read for the case which has the trial in April and I'm actually managing to be fairly productive. Things are looking up on the return to sports activity front. Yesterday at the pool I experimented with switching … Continue reading Day 36: Swim, Bike, and Get Annoyed
This morning's good news was that I woke up with no ill effects from my short spin on the bike yesterday. Tomorrow I will ride again for a bit longer.

The headline from today's follow up is that everything is healing really well but I'm in a (new and more fancy) cast for another week.
