It is difficult to believe that it has been a week since I have last written in my blog. Truly, time does flee. Between an agressive struggle to regain strength and vigor and all the excitement of the Christmas season, last week is just a blur.
Good news from the therapist today. The insert in my right shoe to correct my hip being out of alignment has worked wonders. Most of my pain has gone, but not entirely. It may be that extending my right leg with the lift has effected my right knee. They took a wait-and-see attitude regarding the knee.
The physical therapy to improve strength was again brutal. Several new exercises were used including the large ball procedure. Two new exercises were added to those which I am already doing. Quite exciting, I am now to start walking around the block. That may not seem like much but from where I have been it is a challenge.
Most exciting of all, time on my trike has been extended to 20 minutes, or whatever I am reasonably comfortable with, three-times-a-day for the next week. That will make me riding for an hour or about a fourth of what I will need to ride 10 weeks from now. Consider the weekly improvement from 20 minutes a day, to 45 minutes a day, to 60 minutes a day, plus.
San Diego on March 15th or bust! Yea!
Wishin' you not a pot of gold...but all the joy your heart can hold!
