It’s like every week is busier than the last… and next week isn’t looking much better.
PT is going well. I’m seeing progress most days I go there which is really reassuring since I’m not seeing improvement in my every life with my shoulder.
I did get my first bruise from PT yesterday though. It isn’t really big but it is ugly. Oh yes, and I cried at PT for the first time too. Not sobbing, but there were tears streaming down my face. It just hurt so much. Fortunately, my therapist was very understanding and even said that was why she had me facing away from the everyone else there…
I’m making progress – now using 1 lb weights or a cable instead of just pushing against the pole. Woohoo! One pound weights!
Yesterday, instead of just laying down with my ice, she had me sit in the chair with arm propped up on a bolster so it was perpendicular to my body. Then she put the ice on top of my arm and strapped it on with one of those weights that you can wrap around something (wrist, ankle, cane, etc). It was like traction – pushing down my shoulder which always hikes up when I raise my arm more than like 45*.
Then I went straight to the gym. I walk right by it on the way to and from PT so I figured this would be the best plan.
Speaking of plans – I’m in search of a gym plan. A friend has talked to me about doing a half marathon in March. I wanted to do couch to 5K, so maybe this will turn into couch to half marathon?
