So monday the 21st was 1 year since my tear and this coming monday will be 1 year since surgery.

I am still cautious about jogging but my Dr. reassures me that I so long as i stretch before I shoudl have no problem. My next move is to get new sneakers (or as my friends down here in the south say, Tennis Shoes)

Its been a weird year but other than runnign or jogging Im doing everythgint I used to do. My neighbors sure do like it tht Im actually gardening this spring, WOW what a difference a year makes.

For those of you who have just started the marathon, it seems like a never ending struggle but just keep at it. ELEVATE THAT LEG!

For those of you in PT - make sure to keep STRETCHING under the direction of your DR and PT of course

For those of you out of PT, keep moving. Every day is better than the last.

Good luck you marathoners and thanks to all of you who helped me through it in the beginning!

  1. Nice to hear from you, Michael! I’m right behind you–my one year post is coming up. Glad to hear that you are doing well. I agree that after the first few months, every day does seem to get better.

  2. Good stuff, both of you!

  3. Congratulations, Michael! I’m only 6 weeks into this year-long marathon, but it’s encouraging to hear from someone who’s crossed the finish line.

  4. It’s always great to hear the one-year-out life-is-good stories! I will echo your “keep stretching” comment. It’s easy to let that piece slide once we’re several months down the road, but it continues to be important. I’m running quite a bit now, but if I skip the stretching, I’m sore and hobbling after the run. Wishing you continued improvement, Michael!

  5. I am 4.5 months from surgery. I started running a mile or 2 at about 3.5 months. Had sizable swelling but gets better each week. Am now running 3.5 miles on track with average swelling. Keep at it.

  6. stretch, stretch, stretch. i’m 8 months post-op & last night ran 4 miles on a x-country trail, no reaction & feel great today. it does get better & now the goal is to get fit again.
