Knee Update

What a happy camper!!!!!

Had my second physiotherapy appointment today - exactly three weeks post op. I am now at a point were i can:

Run on the treadmill at up to 9.0 km/h
Use the cross trainer for up to 30 minutes at a level that keeps my knee tracking correctly
Ride the bike for as long as i like as long as my knee tracks correctly.

I am off to the gym tonight to train back but to also give the run a go on the treadmill. Feel a little apprehensive but am not going to know what it feels like if i do not try.

I need to continue with my knee rehab exercises - I can not quite get the left leg straight yet, but with time this will be fine.

With the increased cardio ability my goal of coming in under 10% body fat for October competition is clearly in my sight.
