I went to the surgeon today for my final post operative appointment. The knee has healed very well, and I was cleared to continue jerks, snatches, and bodyweight squats with the provision that if something hurts, wait a week and try it again. I can run if I want to, but I am going to wait until Thanksgiving. Doc advises that some pain is normal, and to take it easy if it hurts.

Where am I 9 weeks post-injury? About five pounds heavier with a moderate loss of conditioning. The plan for the remainder of the year is to continue a basic regimin of 16kg jerks and 16kg snatches working to 10 minutes, with some bodyweight exercises thrown in because I like doing those (and I will be travelling some as well).

I plan to go to Miami to observe the World Kettlebell Championships. I won’t compete in the seated press as this surgery really took a toll on me for a few weeks.
