14 weeks My first run

Today at PT I tried jogging for the first time.  One of my PT activities is to walk on the treadmill for 10 minutes at 3 mph to work on getting rid of this last little hitch that I have in my step.  I decided to jog the last 2 minutes of this today at 5 mph and I am very happy to say that it felt great.  Besides the fact that my heart was beating like I just ran 10 miles and I was sweating like Patrick Ewing in 1994 I felt really good about my  first light jog post injury.  I am incredibly out of shape I now realize  after 14 weeks of doing no cardio activity, but eventually I should be able to fix that.

Tomorrow is exactly 14 weeks post op and I feel great about how the leg is responding.  If I can do it anyone can, for those of you just starting your recovery keep that in mind.

  1. ep1977,

    Congratulations on your first run! I can’t wait to take mine. Even if it was only for two minutes, that’s so inspiring to be able to do it at 14 weeks. I hope I have that kind of success.


  2. Great to hear your progess. I am in week 11 and just start practise to put shoes on for walking. I feel swore when standing with one leg. When can you start to walk with normal shoes? Hope I am not behind the normal schedule.
