YAY for Positive Progress!!
Saturday, February 27, 2010
I am so excited! I walked 2.9 miles this morning...that is right I went from walking just short of a mile to 2.9 miles. My pace is still slow but not as slow as it was.
I walked a 17.57 minutes/mile not as bad as my 24 minute miles I was doing when I first got my Nike+ in June. But not as good as my 16.15 minute pre car accident.
Scot my Dr. was impressed and is happy to see my progress. I am being a good patient, do what I am told and trying to do as many of the exercises I can at home. I guess the most important part is that I am proud of myself. I am working hard to heal and heal right. It would have been so easy to curl up and mope around complaining of the pain. But how could I give up on walking and being healthy?! With all the work I did pre accident it would be sad to have seen it go to waste. I will be back to the 16.15 minute and better real soon because I want to!
I hope everyone else is having a wonderful weekend!
