Hey, everyone! T-bone and I got back from the honeymoon on Wednesday. Kauai was wonderful and it was a great time.
Had PT appt yesterday and it was both encouraging and frustrating. My PT said that my progress to day is "phenomenal" and "amazing" and that I am way far ahead of what they normally see in terms of strength, mobility, healing, etc. I have even been regaining muscle mass to a degree that she said normally doesn't happen at this point in rehab, which is great. However, she said that my new focus for PT, especially since my workout intensity has changed and we are working very much on muscle strength more than just plain mobility, is to take a recovery day between every workout day.
OMG. Yes, it is very sensible and physiologically the smart thing to do. But it's like putting the brakes on just when I want to press the gas.
She did say that the recovery days can be "active recovery", with walking or light swimming (no pool running, no major kick workouts), but no impact, nothing strenuous.
Sigh. I am just so impatient right now. Gotta remember to think long-term and just suck it up and follow instructions.
