i’m going to preface this by saying that the PT/Sports Medicine clinic here is balls to the wall amazing. my first PT was fabulous, and since he’s now out with his own ACL surgery, i have a new PT who, as luck would have it, is just as fierce. and i love that she is in NO way afraid to mix things up and make me werk.
THAT being said…i have never done so many half-squats, one-legged TRX squats, walking lunges, bosu lunges, step-ups (with a medicine ball this week, thank you very much) and step-downs in my life as i did between nine and ten o’clock this morning. my poor little quad is so sore and tight.
but thank you baby jesus, because that means i did some damn good work. and damn good work is where i need to be if i want to get back to my ‘old’ self.
tomorrow is cardio and upper body – giving the leggies a rest – and then back to PT on wednesday. i’m so excited, just because the soreness tells me there is some definite progress going on. plus, i got to 135 degrees flexion right off the bat – at 9am, with a sore hamstring tendon. things are happening, slowly but surely. moving in the right direction.
ONWARD! : )
