WHY TRANSGENDERS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN WOMEN’S SPORT!
I have gone back to rowing as I always need a physical challenge and competition v self or others. As long as I don’t fully flex knee it ought to not be damaging impact. The brace has certainly eased the pain and may be a good stop gap between now and operation to permanently realine.
Proverbs 19:21 “ There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.”
Proverbs 20:24 “ Man’s goings are of the Lord; how can a man then understand his own way?”
Psalm 37:23 ” The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.”
“The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord.” (Job 1:21). I have enjoyed running of all kinds over the years and even toyed with the of the idea of one last decathlon. But it is not to be as the outside semi-lunar cartilage is almost worn away, torn and loose, plus the cartilage on the end of my thigh bone is badly worn (pic. 2). Part of the reason for this is a slight misalignment leg at knee level (see pic. 1). Surgery is planned to augment the cartilage with an artificial spacer (pic. 4)and supplement that on the bone end along with a slight realignment of the bones by an osteotomy (bone cut-see pic. 3). After this, all high impact activities will be prohibited because they could undo all the work. So running, jumping and rowing (extreme flexion) are over. Cycling and walking should be ok. God is good and he knows what he is doing (Psalm 138:8).

by taking a wedge of bone out of the distal femur.

Total Knee Replacement
Rowing after Total Knee Replacement?
The toughest sprint…..all the 400m men finals from age 35 to 95! Look at some of the times!
One of the best female heptathletes ever scores 7013 in her event. Should be worth watching at World Champs in London.
Wayde Van Niekerk can lay claim to being the best all-round sprinter the world has seen even though he has years of competition in him.
First man to:
- Run sub 10 secs for 100m
- Run sub 20 for 200m
- Run sub 31 for 300m
- Run sub 44 for 400m
Sub-10 100m 9⃣●9⃣4⃣ ✅
Sub-20 200m 1⃣9⃣●8⃣4⃣✅
Sub-31 300m 3⃣0⃣●8⃣1⃣✅
Sub-44 400m 4⃣3⃣●0⃣3⃣✅
Wayde van Niekerk (@WaydeDreamer) is on 🔥🔥🔥
And he’s a believer in Christ!
I thank God for the health and strength to row an Irish Record a year ago 12/6/2016 (see pdf.) Date is wrong! I am not up to that this year yet! Lightweight is under 75Kg.
Arguably the best all round sprinter the world has seen. Wayde Van Niekerk, South Africa, a believer in Christ.
Sub 44 for 400m (world record holder 43.03), sub 20 for 200m (19.84 in this race), and sub 10 for 100m (9.98)
In one of best ever Parkruns this year (73.2% age-graded Age Grade explained), I did the 5K (3 miles) in 22mins 42 secs– just down on my best this year and less than a minute down on pre-hip replacement. It was down to prayer for God’s enabling, quality training, a good night’s sleep, rest day from running yesterday, light racing shoes and pushing myself as hard as I could even though I was in “no man’s land” with no runners ahead to chase or behind to keep ahead of. Thankful. Citius-Altius-Fortius…Faster-Higher-Stronger even at my age!
Cross training could include gym/weights, walking, rowing or cycling
