Physical therapy is dull. I may have already said that though. But none the less; I’m going to keep at it. I’m hoping it’s doing some good. The physical therapist keeps looking for something that’s either challenging and/or painful so she has something to “fix”. Nothing yet though.
She has me doing several stretches that I used to do frequently before running (and one great new one; “the pretzel” which is a great hip abductor stretch…see pic below)
I’m now up to 3 sets of 15 on every stretch they can think of; most of which are done with a 3lb weight on my leg. I also do 3×10 of leg press (80 pounds. wow. Seems like I remember doing like 200+ pounds at one time…but that’s been a long time ago now)
The balancing act I do is the most entertaining to watch. My balance is so far off; they make me do it on both legs a hundred different ways trying to get it better. I am terrible with it.
In other news; I’m back cycling again. I’m slow (slow even for being a novice cyclist)…I made it about 8.5 miles the other day; but it took me nearly 50 minutes. It does feel good to be working out again. I can also stand on my feet for 5+ hours too. I’ve been trying to do a little work around the house cleaning up and doing some work on my stereo in my truck.
Anyway. I hope the 3 people who read this had a good Christmas.
