OK so today was so full that I didn't even really have time to THINK about my P.T. appointment. Today with the help from some friends...I got Lovely L to gymnastics, One and Only to baseball camp, Sweet J to play date so I could go to P.T, swim lessons for two kiddos, and finished and presented a training on "child guidance" to our local YMCA! WOW, I'm tired!
So my poor leg is so bruised from the butter knife procedure and water massage...AKA fire hose that I was sure he wouldn't do any type of massage today. But I was wrong. Today he pulled out a crow bar type tool and began again to work on my I.T. band. OUCH!! This was so painful as my bruises are so tender. I survived and was rewarded with a awesome 25 minute run in the pool. So in this pain and chaos there was a beautiful shining MOMENT! My P.T. told me that he felt like it was POSSIBLE that I would be able to run/walk the half. So in the pool and back to the crow bar I will go on Thursday and then hopefully Mon. get to try my first short run OUTSIDE (during the appointment). I am so so happy....that he cleary said, "it shouldn't be a problem" YES!!! I do know that there is chance the pain will be there or return on my test run, but I am hopeful!!
I am not sure where my endurance will feel like??? This has been such the journey...
I am so thankful for this DAY...the day that running was in sight AGAIN, and thankful that this crazy super mama day is OVER!!!
