Friday was my 26th session and with only 2 sessions remaining, we decided to space them out to one every 2 weeks. We are now concentrating on getting me to the point of being able to start jogging. With that in mind, my therapist had me doing 10 minutes on the treadmill at a speed of 3.8 miles per hour. This was about as fast as I could go and still maintain good walking mechanics. He also introduced 2 new exercises. In the first, I rapidly jumped up and down using only the front portion of my feet, while keeping my knees from flexing. In the second exercise, I ran in place lifting my feet only a few inches off the ground. At first it felt pretty weird but I quickly got used to it. It really makes me feel that I’m almost back even though I do have a way to go yet.
Right now, I’m considering getting a used treadmill, anybody got any tips as to what to look for?
