I've been cleared to run. I've run a few times. I'm still scared but I do it anyway! I'm getting better and faster each time.
I went to physical therapy Tuesday. It hurts. But I know it will help me along.
I have some mobility but overall I have stiff, tight joints. My Thumb and where my thumb meets my wrist in particular.
I'm typing a lot better and I've been driving about a week! WOOT!!
7 weeks out today, I'd say I'm making good progress! He initially said I wouldn't be ready for PT until after thanksgiving.
The Therapist was impressed with how much I could move my hand/wrist. And I only have to see him 3 weeks.
Oh and the best part is he looked at my hip and discussed how to improve my running! It's not my IT Band..... I actually have a weak butt!
I'm not firing my glutes, I'm using other muscle groups.
So I need to foam roll...he doesn't care if its trigger point or not.
And I need to work my butt!
Lunges, Squats....of all kinds.
Trying to re-work a schedule to get my runs in and incorporate these exercises too. :) At the end of runs perhaps with more stretching too.
My first race back is next week! Turkey Trot!! My first Turkey Trot- EVER! Eeeekkk!!!
