By taking/teaching my classes, doing PT twice a week and staying consistent, my recovery has been flying by. I am completely amazed at how the body heals. Blood flow, nutrients, hydration and mobility - it all has an impact on your body’s ability to recover. Not just after a major surgery, but even after a tough workout out or event. A lot of people dedicate time to training, but not to recovering.

Today marks three weeks post op. If I look too much to others and compare myself to other people’s recovery I can get discouraged or maybe cocky. But what I have to realize that this is MY journey and I need to do what I need to do, when I need to do it. I have a lot of support from all different directions and look forward to the next few weeks of making progress. There is no doubt that I will have to be reigned in at some point from feeling so good, but that is why I have a physical therapist that knows where I was and where I want to be.
Being a badass isn't just about kicking ass in your sport, but it's about kicking ass in life. Can you adapt and overcome obstacles and comeback from it even stronger? Hell ya you can! And HELL YA I WILL!
2016, the year of endurance. Longer events, epic adventures, and making myself known in the endurance community were just a few of 2016's goals. Little did I know ... 2016 would be the year of recovery. Longer rest, still some epic adventures, and making myself know for a Badass comeback.
