Getting better...

Monday, July 25, 2011

I swam in a lake for 20 minutes yesterday, with almost no pain! Today I'm going to go to the gym and try a gentle workout! I'm so happy to be healing as well as I am! My accident was 2 weeks ago today. I've made tremendous progress! My knee feels so much better and my road rash scabs are all so much smaller! Well on my way!

    I'm so glad you are making progress. Please be careful your body is still healing, make sure you get plenty of rest.

    Thanks! Went back to the gym today...first time...was super hard! Still a lot I can't do because of injuries to forearms and not being able to put a lot of weight on bent knee...only managed 23 minutes on the elliptical, at resistance level 1, but I raised my heart rate, sweat buckets, burned calories and gosh darn it, I went back! And I'll keep going back...and improving each time! Am now icing and elevating and took some Tylenol... :( It's going to take time! And I'm not so good with patience...THAT'S the biggest lesson here, I think!
