The last 2 weeks have been awesome - the best yet. I've got yet ANOTHER Knee Brace. I've named it "Knee Brace 5.0" - as it is my 5th Brace, I like to name things, it's what I do. Really it is, people pay me to name things.
I also have custom foot orthotic 2.0 and they are great. Instead of just supportive like the first set I had made, these are corrective, and I can run so much better in combination with the Knee Brace 5.0 and Foot Orthotic 2.0.
It's OK if you picture me like Forrest Gump, you wouldn't be the first one to call me that. I don't mind, he could run really fast and played ping pong like nobody's business.
I'm at the Gym 4 days a week now and picked up the intensity with more biking, I've added the treadmill with 2-3 of jogging/running over 5-6 minutes, wobble board squats and a TON of stretching, and no pain while doing so. I'm bumped up my "Agility Training" at Physio, and that is really good for my confidence. My sore leg muscles are another story, but I am getting my strength back, and my right leg is 1" thinner than my left, so I have a way to go. I have some weird muscle and tendon things so on, so if I keep that all under control it really helps big time. I usually heat my leg in the morning before i stretch and before i go to the Gym to help loosen things up quicker, then I am still icing after exercise.
THE BIGGEST NEWS ... last night at training I Front Crossed, more than once, and pretty darn well - I got better as I went. I could keep up with Gyp again (mostly) and I did a couple threadles, serps and push-thrus. I still have a way to go until I am back 100% to how I would LIKE to be handling, but heck, I am pretty proud of my progress so far in the past 2-3 weeks.
I am thinking positive and keeping my head up and knee aligned, and hopefully that will be enough to get back, better than ever.
