look ma, no Stitches!

My friend Lynne was nice enough to take out my stitches this week - I was worried about getting them out, but being at friends house and having 2 lovely Vizslas to distract me, made things all better :)

I also started physio this week - well I have been doing real basic things for the last 2 weeks, but I am now doing more. Stretching 3x day and one time a day of Strengthening. And icing 20 min. after every time. I'll be strating back on my upper body and core workouts right away too. It's a pretty big commitment but I am determined to be strong.

Gyp is doing great too - so between the 2 of us, it's around 1.5 hours a day of strength training and stretching, but I am seeing results already with me - and she is also doing fantastic. We have also signed up for Susan Garrett's Brilliant Recall course - a great program for us to start back training together, and a great educational tool I will always have - I thought the timing was great (especially for when i get my invisible puppy)!! I'm excited to start, we've spend the last 3 days playing the Critical Core games :)

For something less gross looking than my knobby knees ... it's Jane - she has been feeling spunky and doing really well these days ... let's hope that continues, we still cherish every day with her, especially the good ones.

Oops, sorry Sarah, I called you Jane! I meant to say, what great news that all of you are doing well! I'm following the Recallers Course as well, what's your name on their website? Mine is Annieke.

Jealous! I wanted to take the recallers course but i had to decide between paying off this semester and the course... And unfortunately school won.

Glad your knee is healing well and that Jane is feeling more spunky!

Well Mandy - hopefully I'll be able to pass on what I learn, and everyone will benefit!

I'm taking the Recallers course too, and I'm glad I signed up. It's worth the money.
