Recovery Update

Today I was able to do 100 pushups. Not all at once, but still, that's a lot of pushups. Especially considering that the day I left the hospital I could do only two pushups before my arms gave out. Soooo, go me!

I also went for a .3 mile jog. Still have yet to make it even close to a mile. It's frustrating, but so long as my hematocrit (percentage of red blood cells by volume to the rest of the blood) remains low, like 29-32 instead of 42-46, exercise requiring strong respiratory and cardiovascular systems will suffer. Just have to keep on truckin' and wait it out. My goal is to be able to run a 50k before January of 2014. It's incredibly ambitious, I know, and maybe impossible, but that is my goal. I'll keep you all updated!
