Vasectomy recovery day 3.
I'm ready to go get my axe and chop through the door, but my doctor said not to lift anything for 3 days... maybe tomorrow. I am cheating on this rule because I can't leave my 6 month old son to fend for himself.
I'm going stir crazy. This is the first time ever that I can't run. I've never had anyone tell me "do not run". I've never thought the whole run "streak" thing made any sense and I'm a big believer in taking days off, but there's something about not having the choice that makes it almost unbearable. Even if I could run, maybe I wouldn't, but at least the choice would be mine. I never sit still and the last 3 days are a lifetime record for me. My back hurts from lying flat. With my first ultra race hanging in front of me like a colorful little burro pinata (a burro pinata is my favorite kind) waiting to be swung at, I'm itching to kill it but I have no stick. I can run on Friday if my junk isn't 'draining' or infected... so far so good with only mild swelling and no pain.
