Well today was the day I got to see the P.T. He told me that yes, yes my right hip and leg overall is weaker than my right and my knee has been pulling up the slack most likely for months. So we did some stretching and base assesments and then into the pool I went. YES!! 15 minutes of pure joy....I was able to RUN! The treadmill is in the water and he also added some jets for resistance. It felt good but I am worried of what I will feel like in the morning. I must add that running in a bathing suit is not a good look for me. Undulation and fat in slow motion is not a good thing. I was so happy to be running that I didn't really care. Who cares if my inner thighs were doing weird floaty things on the big screen. Yes, you are on camera the whole time....so it is recorded for viewing. NICE!
After that he gave me this 5 day band-aid that I am sporting in the pic. It is suppose to help with keeping inflamtion down. I also came home with a foam roller. OUCH! So he told me the same...that running by the end of June would be best case scenario. I don't want to rule it out or get bummed until I know more. Right now I am just thinking...MARATHON! So I will wait and assess it next week....more time and we should get an idea if the pain is going to return?? We also talked alot about RUNNING in general and had some awesome insight and thoughts on this "addictive sport". I will share more on that next time....I am off to ICE and watch a little Bacherlorette!
