Training with Mr. Bailey

Well, I'm one week post surgery, yeah!  I'm slowly coming around and its amazing how much better I feel already....which made me realize how bad I was actually feeling the past few weeks.  I was able to start walking last Friday and that means I acquired a new training partner: Mr. Bailey!  Competitiveness must run in the family because yesterday he was pushing the pace like crazy.  Then my competitiveness kicked in and we were walking faster and faster and faster...enough that my shins were sore today :)  Who'd thought that I'd ever get sore from walking?!  Then Mr. Bailey proceeded to show off for me in the pool.  I think he knows I can't get in the water quite yet and enjoyed making me jealous!  But since I am the treat giver, he knows not to get me too upset. 

Mr. Bailey must have had the time of his life yesterday, because I woke up to a hyper lab puppy licking my face and not letting me get anything done until we went on our walk.  And today we set a PR on our 'course'...yah, not an athlete at all?! 

All in all, recovery is going smoothly.  Had to get some internal stitches, so my recovery period will be a bit longer than originally expected.  Hoping to be on the trainer tomorrow and maybe try out the pool too.  Can't tell ya how excited I am to be swimming...I think this is the longest I've gone without swimming since I had a cast on my leg when I was 8 years old!  Starting to feel like a beached whale :)

Well, I gotta get going, Mr. Bailey wants another treat!!! Better go spoil him some more so he'll be set to go in the morning.
