Fitness Report 2: Bane of the Pickle Jar

So, I realized that I've been (not entirely consciously) holding off on doing another fitness report until a) I could get my body fat percentage measured again, and b) I could announce that my stupid bursitis was ALL GONE.

Well, a) was just a matter of waiting for the next convenient date when the folks with the tank were at my workplace. B) is a more vexed question. As far as I can tell, the actual inflammation of the bursa is long since healed, but I'm still prone to getting a slight ache in my left hamstring and/or tensor fascia lata if I overdo it. Determining what constitutes overdoing it is a process of trial and error, because I seldom feel pain while actually exercising. The overall trend is towards less pain and faster recovery when I do get pain, so I'm hopeful that some time in the not too distant future I can call this injury a thing of the past.
