Physical Therapy

So I went in for session number two of foot torture this afternoon. The first time wasn’t as bad as this time – this time it was pretty painful and I was feeling it when I left. I guess it has to be done for the long run but I had that bad, I wish I could quit, kind of vibe in my head when I left. She is doing some pretty deep massage and moving around tissues and stuff I guess and a few times she just really hit some pain spots. This really better work in the long run because it’s not fun. I have another medicated patch to wear overnight tonight and I go back for more on Wednesday and then a small break before going in three times next week. The people there are great though, everyone is nice and etc.

The Bike

Bike in the Park

When I got done at PT I decided to first stop and get a smoothie at Juice Stop and then I had planned to come home and ride my bike. During the drive home that looked like it might not happen thanks to the rainy weather. Thankfully, after dinner the sun was out and I ended up still getting in a nice ride tonight. I went down to the Rock Island trail/Billy Wolff trail area and rode around. Ended up going around the zoo a couple times, down to Calvert and out to Jim Ager Golf Course and back home. The weather was nice and lots of people were out on the trail. I’m learning how to properly pass people and while I’m certainly not the fastest bike on the trail I still hold my own. Only had to walk a little once when I hit an incline in the wrong gear coming off an underpass. Those underpass ramps can be brutal for a beginner!

Push Ups

I don’t think I have ever been able to do a proper push up so I decided it was time to change that. My new long term goal is to be able to do some real push ups. There is a program online called One Hundred Push Ups and I’ve decided to follow that. I encourage anyone reading this to join me, it could be fun! I’m currently working my way through wall push ups on week 3 to start. Once I get more comfortable with that I plan to move to bench push-ups, then “girl” push-ups and finally full push ups. I can’t do the “girl” push ups right now because my knee is, technically, still healing and kneeling on it would be bad.
