Since running is somewhat out of the question for the time being, my intention has been to add in a variety of cross-training to maintain endurance, build strength (especially in my legs to support my ailing knee better). I’ve started doing a 20-minute quick-spin class at the gym on Monday’s and Yoga on Thursday’s. I have had plans and intentions of adding in a night of swimming during the week but that has yet to happen.
Even though I’m not running, I’m still working hard at rehabbing. This became ridiculously evident yesterday when, on a rare day off without the kids (Thanks for taking them for a few hours Oma!!) I went to update my bills and insurance stuff. I quickly found out that I was the Foursquare mayor at my physiotherapy clinic and not one, but two chiro clinics. Egad! I’m not sure whether to label that as proactive or ridiculous. I’ve now stopped physiotherapy because I have plateaued in my recovery and the second chiropractor is for Graston. I just need to add in massage therapy and I’ve got the trifecta of paramedical therapy taken care of.
It’s been quite a ride and though I know it’s for the greater good, I feel like I’m constantly on the go to different places for different treatments. I know I will be thankful when this is all behind me. I’ve never had such an appreciation for what I put my body through every day and how I need to take care of it. Part of taking care of it is not giving up on it. So onward and upward I go looking forward and not back. Never. Look. Back.
Now, it’s off to the chiropractor with my two littles in tow. Greater good. Greater good. Greater good….
