      Swam with the Boise Vet group today.
      Good group of people!
      Pulled 250 yards of it with the drag chute.
      That gadget tends to produce some sore spots!l

        Jett- I wish I had the discipline to get up and swim. The pool near me is very reasonable, but to get the cheap rate you have to go before 8:30 in the morning. Maybe I will get my into it at some point this winter. It'll make me feel more confident in the ocean when the summer comes back around. I can imagine dragging a chute behind. Cheers!

        Back to the gym tonight after snowboarding Friday and convention going.
        Did the stationary bike for 20 minutes
        Upper body

        On the advice of a friend decided to try wall squating. I was able to do 3 sets for 30 seconds at 90 degrees. Had my crutches with me for support if I needed (which I did) Trying to strengthen those quads and build my shorter term stamina if that makes sense.

            30 mins Leslie Sansone workout...super cardio! 30 mins on treadmill. 300 ab crunches. Some stretching. I can actually march in place for the Leslie workouts without holding on to anything. Pretty weird because that's a more difficult motion than walking. We're in the land of ice and snow right now. Will not be going outside in it, unfortunately. Just too dangerous!

            Keep working hard everyone. I like reading about your workouts and your progress!

              Truly-Still not really able to march in place myself. I can for like maybe 5 steps but not much. There are times that I need a pick me up. Knowing that you are still working hard at it making progress much farther along than me helps keep me motivated. Stay safe. No more set backs.

                    Hi Drew nice video, great to see you up and about. I have some KAFOs like yours but there supposed to lock and unlock at the knees as you walk. Have to say that its damn hard to get them to do it just right. Some of the time when you step down they do not lock and some of the time when you step ahead they do no unlock. And they weight 2.5 pounds apiece. After a lot of frustration I moved on to AFOs and am trying to work my little thighs

                    Well its been great riding weather out west, clear ever day, frozen in the mornings, but warming up to about 50 during the day. A little hard to dress for, when you ride down in the shade its still frozen with ice on the road, ahh but then your back in to the sun to thaw out. Just great.

                      Thanks, ive saw the newer kafos with the knee unlocking... pretty neat. I worked with the rewalk, that was pretty tough, I dont like walkin with crutches and had to learn to use them along with the machine. Def a cool experience! I have a video on my youtube of that also!

                        Great job Drew. I think SCI Total fitness is great. Her thread on here as helped me a lot. No matter what exercise is beneficial. When learning to walk again it is imperative.
                        being able to get it done at home makes it easier as well. Please let us know how it goes.

                            No more hand cycling for a while. Was ridding on my trusty steed yesterday with a friend. We took the flatter ride because I wanted to go by the old vets house that had got a hand cycle, and see how he was doing with his latest surgery. Just after his house on a very flat and smooth road my bike frame broke in half. It broke right under the back of the seat and just folded me up pretty good. After about five minuets my friend came by and gave us a ride back to my place. I am just very happy that it did not brake going down a hill at 35 mph, that would really have hurt and most likely broke some body part, and I've definitely had enough of that for a life time. Anyway I'm sending the striped down frame to Mike at freedom rider and they are sending me a new one. Guess I'm still a little bit lucky after all.

                                Flying- You have been putting that bike to the test and it broke before you did. Cheers!
