I posted about my first day, the assessment, and then Thursday, I got another set of exercises to do at home. I did those at PT on Thursday, and right now we're doing things I can do at home. If we're using equipment, it's equipment I have access to. I'm sure we'll build up to the TRX stuff, but right now it's all exercises I can do outside of PT. I have set 1 and set 2, and she said do those on rotating days so I do them every day, but not on PT days. This should help build me up and hopefully get me back on schedule soon.
My run went well on Saturday. I did 3.5 on the treadmill since I didn't know how much I wanted to do, and I thought I'd just go until I felt a got to a good number. I felt like I could've gone farther, but the knee was feeling good, and I still had PT set #2 to do. I used my new shoes to in order to test them out, and the brand new cushioning feels great. It's like I have a little extra bounce in my steps.
To make things even better Saturday, I had my first blue bonnet sighting! They've been blooming south of here, but I hadn't seen them yet in my area. I decided to go looking a little bit, starting with the nature preserve near my old apartment. Bingo! Of course I took pictures :)
Sunday I met my cousin for lunch, which is always the Cheesecake Factory, then some shopping. The weather was even better than Saturday's, and when I got home, I opened the back door with the screen door shut, and Allie parked herself in front of the door and sniffed and prowled. Squirrel!
I did my PT set #1 with some 10-minute glutes and a 10-minute Pure Barre. I am a little sore today, which I'm happy about.
