Doctor Says: Inguinal Hernia


After the exam today I went to see the doctor about my sub-abdominal pain. The result was clear: Inguinal Hernia that I have to operate soon. He said I can continue running but i have to protect myself and think about doing the surgery as soon as I can. Such a bad news...

Bad Day Tomorrow

Today me and the guys from my team, for the semi-marathon competition in the weekend, did our last training together. It was a nice run in the forest, the only problem was with the big fresh-snow but we managed to survive it and we have a positive feeling for Sunday.
And not let me get to the bad part. Tomorrow I have a exam in college and after that I go to the hospital to see what is with the pain I have been experiencing in my lower right part of the body, just under the abdomen. I have a bad feeling about it but I can only hope for the best. Keep your fingers crossed not only for my difficult day tomorrow but also for the semi-marathon.

P.S. I hope just that I won`t meet this kind of doctor!

P.S. 2 Starting from yesterday you can find my blog on World Of O`s second page!

Preparing for Semi - Marathon Gerar 2011

One week from now I will run the first edition of Semi - Marathon Gerar - a competitions organized by RO Club Maraton. It`s a competition for teams of 3 men. My team name is Orienteering Team (what better name?) and it`s formed of me, Daniel Stroescu and Cosmin Georgescu. We did some trainings together and we tried to blend in as a team because the rules of the competition say that you are not allowed to go 5m from your team mates so it will be more than running.
The event is pretty big judging by the numbers of teams registered. There will also be a 3.5km race for the ones who can`t run a semi-marathon. I hope it will be a good training and a good motivation for the rest of the winter training period. More details and information you can find on the event official web page.
