Back in the saddle once again

I am running again. I don't know if my knee is right just yet, but I am running. I did 2 miles on Monday to test things out and 3 yesterday to get back in the swing of things. Today, I played basketball and won two games of one-on-one and a game of 21 and had no problem playing above the rim, so I know that P90X is working (plyometrics, baby).

I am wearing a knee brace during every physical activity (except swimming). It is a bit uncomfortable, but keeps my knee from yelling at me so I'll wear it. I am also swimming more than ever before. I can only go 50 meters at a time, but I rack up some reps while the kids are in swim practice. Breath control in swimming is serious business.

P90X has put a few pounds on me, but I think that 190 lbs looks good on me. It funny how I used to think I couldn't get down to 192 and now I have to put on weight to get to 190.

The Summer's good. Life is good. I just celebrated my eleven year anniversary with a beautiful wife and happy, healthy, and awesome children. I couldn't be happier.
