I am hopeful that next week will be my last session of physical therapy. My PT will do a re-evaluation and she will decide if I need to continue with the therapy or if she will release me and I will continue the healing process on my own.
I have been getting a little risky lately.....I can't lie. I have been trying a little speed walk/jog routine on the treadmill to see how I feel. I don't want to get overly optimistic here but for the last two times that I tried this, I have not had any pain during or the day after. In the past, the pain was pretty bad the next day so I know that I am making progress. Having said that, I was going to try to run on the treadmill last night. I went to the gym and it was so crowded!! There wasn't a single treadmill or elliptical available so I took that as a sign that I shouldn't run. I opted for the 6:45pm spin class since it was 6:40pm when I looked at my watch. Spin is always a great workout for me but I have to admit that I was struggling at times. I didn't feel as strong as I used to so I was kind of sad about that! That's okay though, I will get it back!
I woke up this morning with a very, very slight amount of pain which my PT said is normal as long as it dies down and doesn't get worse. I am going to take a rest today and I think I am going to try to run tomorrow. Nothing crazy but I really want to try a couple miles at a really slow pace and see that happens. My doctor did tell me that I will be able to run again when I do not feel any pain and I think I am ready to take a chance and see what happens. Keep your fingers crossed a say a little prayer for me. I am dying to get back to running again!!
