So have really been hitting the gym much harder lately. Increasing times and resistance on the Elliptical and Stationary Bike..Also, started an actual workout in the pool instead of just swimming laps.

Even today, I started doing some squats..s

Hope everyone is doing well.

My wife and I walked the St Jude 5k this weekend. We actually beat our goal of under 1 hour. My hip was not really feeling well afterwards, which my PT said would happen but I had already signed up for it and I love

Another week of rehab in the books. It seems like we are focusing more on strength now and not quite as much on mobility.

Walked 3.1 miles today and the weather was perfect. 51 degrees, little wind..this is the weather I wish I was running in..


Candrews1 posted a discussion topic 10 months, 2 weeks ago

I am currently 7 weeks out of surgery. Rehab is going well. I have walked a few 5ks in the last few weeks. This is the only thing I am cleared for as of right now.

Hopefully everyone is getting some of this fall weather.
