Believe it or not, I have followed my orthopedic surgeon's and physical therapist's prescribed treatments to the letter. To. The. Letter. And guess what? Could it be they really do know what they are doing? Because my knee is feeling almost like new. Yes, every now and then the knee gives me some smack talk when climbing stairs or getting into a car but other than that it's no longer giving me pain.
And here's the exciting news. Today I ran! It wasn't much but I ran!
The workout was a 60 minute track session of walk 400 yards, run 400 yards slow, continuous repeat.
Gone are the days of only walking... I hope.
Although I didn't even as much as break a sweat I felt like it was good training. Perhaps more for the mind than for the body, right?
Only three weeks of physical therapy remain and then, a formal evaluation for surgery. Keep your fingers crossed I can avoid the knife and heal fully.
