I just had a partial knee replacement of my left knee. Life sure has had its twists & turns in 2020, including this one. Be sure to listen to this complete episode from start to finish as it has a “surprise” ending.
In today’s episode, I share my deep thoughts during my Last Workout before surgery on operation day. Specifically, I share about:
- Why I’m getting my left knee replaced now
- Why I haven’t said much about it “publicly” until now
- My mindset going into surgery and how I had to “flip the switch” several times in the last few weeks
- My “pre-game” strength routine, including a bit of “Arm-Farm” on day of surgery
- Pre-game final prayer before surgery
- Whoops, a HUGE surprise and disappointment, that made me have to “Get My Mind Right” quickly
- MINDSET when you just can’t control the timing
By the time you listen to this episode, I’ll be about 48-hours out of surgery. I appreciate all your thoughts & prayers, and I just dropped some updates over on my Instagram & Facebook (Dec 6th, 2020). Additionally, I’ll share a few updates on future episodes relating to my Recovery, Healing, & Mindset Post-surgery in the upcoming weeks. 2021 is around the corner. I hope you will be as physically & mentally ready as I am to “sprint” into 2021! #LetsGO
