Today was a physical therapy day. She kicked my butt – which was a great thing. My knee is feeling a lot stronger every week, but today, when she had me do a side step-up, nothing happened and my leg crumpled. It just didn’t know what it was supposed to do. So we worked on that for a while and at the end of the session, I was able to do the side step-up – slowly and as long as I was thinking about it.
Then I went for my 0.5 run and almost made it all the way around the loop before walking. My knee felt more comfortable than last night and this was after a pretty tough physical therapy session.
So far I have run a total of 1.0 mile this year and I am extremely happy with it.
