The Crazy One

Journal Entry

Had to change my CDT Class of 2016 hiking schedule to CDT Class of 2017 due to some shoulder surgery last Feb. Having rotator cuff surgery is a real treat. It takes almost a full year to completely heal up and get the range of motion/strength back. During that period of time, having shoulder straps bearing down on you while being married to a backpack is a whole new adventure in pain. Needless to say, the trip was put off until this coming summer. Training has begun with the daily walks and each walk is getting a little longer with more weight being added to the backpack each week. Shoulder still feels a little sore after a good workout, but it is to be expected. See you boys and girls on the trail!
