Saturday and Sunday, I did no exercise at all.

Merlin’s Story Part V: Conclusion. I named my X10 machine ‘Brunhilda’ and we quickly became fast friends.

I could set my target, crank up the Mozart to levels that drowned the pain, pace myself, and have small victories which I would celebrate with my recovery coaches. My knee surgery recovery and the X10 were now working in synchronization.

It was compromising walking on the stairs or playing tennis. Every night, when I went to sleep, I woke up every two to three hours with excruciating pain. I knew in my heart, at this point in time, with both knees compromised, I had to do something.
