Default I'm Back

Well...just wanted to say that the doctor cleared me for exercise. He said that the artery shouldn't have any problems holding up to intense stress: sprints, intense metcon, heavy lifts, etc. I explained to him crossfit and he said, "no problem."

So, my welcome back workout today was 15 9 ft. slosh pipe front squats, 40 jumping pullups, 10 ring pushups (I'm very weak right now), and a 400 meter hill run. Three times!

It felt good to get back into it. I didn't push it too hard and my body didn't yell at me, so I'm happy. Now's the slow progression back to some form of "fit."

Thanks for all the help,

Default Spoke too soon!

Ok, so now, after a few days of training, I've developed a seroma under my incision site. A seroma is a pocket of clear serous fluid.

Anyone know if I should be training with this? I'm seeing the dr. again, but not for another week...

I'd take it easy on the high intensity work (heavy lifting, intervals, metabolic conditioning, etc.). Just in case.

Thanks Steven...but I'm stupid...have been following that advice--in terms of lifting, but I've still been doing some intense metcon...well...today at work the seroma "popped" (sorry to be gross), but it looks like I still have a bit of recovery before I can get back on the horse and really train...does anyone know the limitations of a seroma? THink I might just do NOTHING for a while. Gonna see the doc on Friday...
