After 4 complete rest days, I can now walk without a limp.  Yea! 

Abs and Core

Cycle x 1hour

Elliptical x 10 minutes

Still walking without  limp.

Still hoping to run UVM.

No limp is a good thing. You are playing this very smart as usual.

From timp on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 13:28:55 from

good progress. Don't rush it back

From DonGardinero on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 14:21:09 from

That's good news. Maybe give it a few more days before you try running on it.

From Rhett on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 14:26:20 from

Thanks Andy. Unfortunately I'm becoming an injury expert. I learned a lot last summer about being patient with an injury and not running on it before it is ready.

Tim, I'm trying to be good.

Dale, if it feels right, I'll try and run with Doone this Saturday. That way I won't run too fast. Right now I can still tell it is not even close to running on yet.

From Smooth on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 16:29:11 from

Keep up the positive attitude! NICE workouts! Cycling for an hour would make my sitter sore; not to mention very boring! You're doing awesome!

GOOD LUCK with the test run on Sat. w/ Doone and remember to have FUN!

From Kathie on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 16:36:01 from

Nice ride on the bike, did you take a class or on your own?

From Rhett on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 16:41:56 from

Smooth, thanks. So far I still have hope for a speedy recovery and therefor have been able to stay positive.

Kathie, I just rode on my own. I made it 19.43 mile in 1 hour. I'll try to get in 20 miles next time.

From Mack on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 19:17:21 from

Glad to hear things are going in the right direction for you. Keep healing!!

From Teena Marie on Wed, May 26, 2010 at 00:55:14 from

That's some super speed there on the bike! :) (And let me guess ... it wasn't on an easy level either.)

Seriously ... nice job!! Stay motivated!!

From Rhett on Wed, May 26, 2010 at 12:29:39 from

Teena, thanks for the info on the KT tape. It seems to be helping. Please thank your PT friend for me also.

I still get some sharp pain, when I first start walking after having sat for a while, but then it seems to be pain free after a few steps.

From Teena Marie on Wed, May 26, 2010 at 19:04:17 from

Hoping that it is getting better by the minute. :)
