I've been talking about a lot of other stuff lately so I just wanted to throw out there that I am feeling GREAT!!!
I was worried that all the stairs and hills in Arrowhead this past weekend, coupled with the longest walk since surgery (over 2 miles!) would do me in, but it hasn't. I have continued to feel really good in the knee.
So good in fact that yesterday we upped the speed on the treadmill at physical therapy again to 4.2 (was at 3.8 the past 3 sessions) and had no problems and even though she has given me a lot of new exercises I have been able to handle them without soreness or increased swelling.
This morning I walked 25 minutes, so not as long as last Friday, but it felt really good and loose the entire time and it will be what I'm shooting for on a regular basis (Monday-Thursday with the longer walk on Friday...and I don't know on Saturday - still figuring that one out!). I wrapped it all up with my at-home PT exercises, core work and stretching and then ice.
I have two more physical therapy sessions left and I really think she's going to leave me in a great place if the current trend continues!
So there you have it - recovery is definitely progressing!
