17 weeks

ahhh what a difference a few weeks can make! Started physical therapy 2 weeks ago. My therapist observed my gait running on the treadmill yesterday and said there was no sign of a limp! I do have to actively concentrate in order to maintain my gait. Today I ran 2.5 miles at a 10 minute per mile pace. It felt so good. I feel like I am getting my life back! My PT said I am ahead of the curve. My pointing and flexing range of motion is identical on both legs. Side to side movement is a bit less on my repaired side. I am enjoying the PT challenges and building up my strength again!

For those still sitting on the sidelines…have faith, you will get back in the game!!

    Wow! Outstanding. Just 17 weeks out, and you’re almost ready to bang out a 5K under a half hour. That, and even more impressive and important, you’re walking relatively limp-free.

    Congrats! I’m not necessarily expecting the same results for myself at week 17, but I’m happy for your success and consider it inspiring.

    All the best!
