My 19th therapy session was Friday and with my regular therapist on vacation, I had another new therapist. There was nothing new introduced and the session consisted of the usual warm up, leg press, calf raise on a machine and a few balance exercises, some using the Bosu ball. My therapist did say that now that I seem to have eliminated my limp, I need to concentrate on picking up the pace of my walk.
So with that in mind, after the session my wife and I went to a downtown restaurant for lunch and I parked across the street from the restaurant. I figured it would give me great incentive to walk faster by crossing the street, mid block. So throwing caution to the wind, I boldly jaywalked across the downtown street. Okay, it was downtown suburban Wheaton, Illinois. Maybe not it’s not like Midtown Manhattan or even Chicago but it was a street. And of course I waited until no cars were coming. Yet there was still a pot hole I had to avoid - a big pothole. Well at least a big pothole for Wheaton Illinois. LOL
