After Tuesday's success with planning for the gym, I followed suit - this time I wore my gym clothes to the doctor. No excuses. However, the doctor agreed with me about the lump on my shin and decided we needed to find out what's going on. A 5x2 mm piece removed for a biopsy and two stitches later, I'm out the door.
No strenuous exercise until the stitches are out in about 9 days time because there's not much tissue/muscles etc under the spot where the biopsy was removed. On the plus side, the osteopath has cleared me to start ramping up the intensity -- slowly. In 9 days from now I'll go back to the gym.
PSA: Summer is on its way. Remember to keep yourself well protected from the Sun's nasty rays. Slip, slop, slap, wrap and have your skin checked by a GP if you've ever been out of doors unprotected
