I got in an hour of cardio this morning and it was nice, though painful (big toe, left foot). I trimmed the big toenail afterwards and it feels a lot better.
I checked the bag in the office and found that I had some leaking. I'm not sure how it happened (I did do some running) but there's no stinging and the leak was contained by the Hypafix tape. I have a roll in the office so I can take replace it but I might just change the bag when I get home. I really love this tape, both for the illeostomy and for using to bandage large cuts and bruises.
We have a summer contest - the minimum requirements are to walk 24 miles per week for 12 weeks. We had this contest last year but it was 20 mile a week for 8 weeks. It should be a good contest to help get me back in shape for the reversal. I'll have to be mindful to keep up with the strength training though.
The nice weather is inspiring for getting outside too.
