Confessions of a Lazy Person : Just Shy Of One Year Later

When I broke my leg a year ago (minus one day) the surgeon informed that it will take 6-12 months to get back to where I was before I broke my leg. I thought he was crazy! A year? I’ve since heard a few stories of healing taking multiple years and I’m starting to think getting back to where I was before I broke my leg is going to be an impossibility. Do we ever go back to where we were before a break?

The good news is, I’m running again! I tried running on the treadmill a couple months ago and it resulted in some pretty uncomfortable limping and pain. If I’m not paying attention I can still limp but I ran for 10 minutes staying strong without a limp yesterday so I think I’m getting back on track. The other thing I noticed is when I run my ankle hurts a lot, and I’m thinking this might be a good thing. It’s pushing my ankle beyond what is comfortable, more than the other exercises I do. I’m also wondering if trail running would be better – the uneven ground would make my ankle work harder than a treadmill. I think it needs a little jostling around.

Some things to think about and experiment with. I honestly thought I’d be back to normal within 3 months of breaking my leg and ankle. This has been an eye opener.

Look what we found! A bike jump - The Observers' dogs

Tanglefoot Vets in Fernie is now open on Saturdays!

Their hours used to be Monday to Friday and now you get an extra Vet day (9am-5pm)! We don’t have a dog but my kids often pretend they’re dogs and cats. For the many who have real pets in this town, this might be helpful.

Happy Saturday!

New Running Challenge – The Lone Wolf

The Lone Wolf - Running Challenge by The Stag Leap

The Lone Wolf is a new trail running challenge in Fernie, BC. A simple, fun, looped race. But there’s a catch. Racers start together on the hour as a pack, needing to finish the loop within the hour. As when the next hour strikes, the race starts again, in the opposite direction. The goal? To complete as many loops as you can.

The course will be a beautiful, manageable, single track loop, with moderate elevation gain. Around the 7km mark, it will be easy enough to complete within the cutoff time for most, however pacing and tactics will come into play as the day goes on.

The loop will be washing-machine style – heading clockwise, then counterclockwise, then clockwise and so on. Racers need to make it back to base before the hour cutoff, and be ready to start the loop again, on the hour. If you miss the cutoff, you’re out and you remain in the den.

What I can’t say, I paint

Opening in the Gallery tonight:
January 4th, 7pm

“Some of the paintings focus on our voyeuristic urge, to watch, to judge without thinking for ourselves and a few others are more positive like being part of a supportive structure, being right in the middle of that drastic change we want to see.”Join Pru and ourselves at the opening this Thursday at 7pm to preview this thought-provoking exhibition.
