I like exercise. I swim and run and go to the gym a lot. However I have two fairly minor surgeries coming up within a week of each other.
The surgeons don't want me to break a sweat for a collective three weeks in a row. As you can imagine, I am unimpressed by the proposition - not least because, as respected and highly competent as these particular surgeons are, they are likely just covering their asses for the most part and I could hit the weights again in far, far less time. Alternatively if I don't take their advise and end up back under the knife again that would put me out even longer.
Thing is I need to stay fit as possible because I'll be joining the army within a few months. Three weeks is an unacceptable hiatus. Seriously, what do?
