Happy Saturday everyone!
Okay, a brief update….Yesterday I did notice that my knee was a bit more sore than usual from the previous day’s workout, so my plan was, and is, to go to the gym every other day so I don’t start flaring the knee up to the point where I can’t progress. (Plus, I do need to be a bit careful about workouts due to a long-standing neck issue.)
I got up this morning and “voila”, my knee was back to umm “normal” if one can say normal at my stage of recovery, lol. I couldn’t wait to rush off to the gym! Ahhhh….it totally reminded me of the good ol’ days…getting up in the morning and putting on my gym clothes.
I did a bit of rowing that got me huffing and puffing, and then I even tried a cardio machine that’s like a little staircase. They’ve improved since I last did one in probably 1985, lol. But one thing I noticed is how STRONG my right knee is! OMG, it was amazing how I could push off my right leg the way I did. Granted, I went very slowly and not for very long, but I really noticed a huge difference. I couldn’t even dream of even getting on one of these prior to my knee replacement. Heck, I couldn’t even walk let alone do any of what I’m doing now. One thing it did remind me of, however, is how my left knee needs to be replaced.
All in all, I had a nice little workout! I’m now ready for the day and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
