..... an excellent day.......

Well yesterday I said now I can..... well tonight i can say well now i have........

completed a 30 minute interval workout on the treadmill:

  • 1 minute at 6 km/h
  • 1 minute at 8.0 km/h
  • 1 minute at 9.0 km/h
..... and I completed a 45 minute spin class. I stayed in the saddle the whole time and kept the resistance low, however did reach 82% max. heart rate through controlled speed. I also had a really great chest and abdominal workout. My knee has not swollen, and I have had no pain all day..... all good signs I would suggest. Its interesting how suddenly everyone becomes a specialist...... should you be doing that, isn't that too soon....... rather than, "wow its great to see your rehab progressing so well" 

Considering I am three weeks post op. on my knee this is truly a dream come true and way beyond what I expected. More physiotherapy tomorrow, cant wait. 

Its 9.42pm, I am usually in bed at this time so good night.
