Go to gym – workout the parts that are working well -Abs and Arms. Focus not on what I can’t do, Focus on what I can do.
By planning to focus on what works – I felt really good going in. I felt in control and ready for a good workout.
Not only did I work out the working parts, I got on the bike – just for fun. Guess what – 10 minutes of full cycling . I almost screamed for joy when my leg completed a full rotation on the bike. I was sooo happy.
Then – feeling very badaxx , I jumped on the treadmill to see what I could do. I did a little jogtype walking thing at 3.2 (woo hoo) .
The amazing thing is that at 3 weeks post surgery despite swelling, atrophy, pain etc., running (or whatever I was doing) feels better now than it has for the past 6 months. I just may get the other leg done after all.
