02 Dec Paul Oneid – 2 Sleeps!
After a number of months dealing with knee and hip pain, it was revealed that I have a torn lateral meniscus in my left knee, which requires arthroscopic surgery. I am currently scheduled to have the surgery on December 4th. Training until then is devoted to hypertrophy, as I likely will not compete until the summer. My goal right now is to put some size on my upper body and to balance out my lower body in order to facilitate the post surgery recovery. I am still working with Scott Paltos for my nutrition and Brian for my upper body training.
Training for the last week was the same as the week before… and the week before that… and the last 6 weeks before that. This has been the trend for me. Trying to move forward while standing still. Friday I go under the knife. While to some that means limited activity, pain and a temporary decrease in function, but to me it means that I am no longer running in one spot. I can actually make progress towards something and move forward.
I will post an update as soon as I get home from surgery. Should be a quick 40 minutes in the operating room. Likely I will be able to walk the same day. Funny to think that all this annoyance for 40 minutes 2-3 little holes in my knee, but that’s the way to cookie crumbles I guess.
I want to sincerely thank everyone for the good thoughts over the last few days and weeks. I am beyond lucky to have such a great group of friends, both in person and through social media.
