@Layla video was too large. Unless you know a way to do it.
Actually...no, I don't. Sorry.
Ask your kids, that what I always do, or worse yet, my grandkids often educate me!
Thought about it and forgot about it....worked out ok though. 1 hour 15 min drive up. Was able to hangout and have lunch with the boys before their first game. Sat through the game on good old middle school bleachers without any issue.
1 hour 15 min drive home. Since I didn’t make it to the gym yesterday, I’m headed there now. My first official bachelor duty for the next 2 days! LOL
Ok. Didn’t have time to jump on a stationary bike.
I do get 2 miles on the elliptical in 19:53 min. Then 500 yards walking in the lap pool (4 to 4.5 feet) in 10:04 min.
Only problems were the piriformis ached just a little bit on the elliptical. The pool walking was very smooth. I would recommend aqua anything for rehab!
I don't think pushing it to the point of anything aching is a good thing this early into recovery.
Your body is trying to heal, please don't sabotage it. You're only 6 weeks out from major surgery.
I realize you know that, so BEHAVE!
Hoping to hit the pool this weekend or next. My doc said it was ok once there were no scabs on my scars. Were you given any restrictions on pool timing?
Pretty much the same. I waited until they got a look at it at the 6 week mark. I knew it was closed and probably good to go around 4.5-5 weeks.
My intent wasn’t to push until the ache. It just started to ache. Nothing in the hip felt off or hurt or aches in any way. I’m just getting some movement into muscles that haven’t fired like this in a while. As an active person, I know what lack of use feels like, therefore I’m fairly confident I’m not doing anything negative. Thank you as always for your support and kind words!
I have the smoker fired up again today! Brisket and brats! Going outside to mow the lawn now.
Brisket and Brats sound safe. Nothing for me to wave a finger at just don't trip on a rabbit hole while mowing the lawn
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy!
The food was yummy, the lawn is mowed with no incident. This morning I had to drive back up to the basketball tournament and I remembered my special seat cushion this time. Makes a good difference . Is there an emoji for happy butt?
I obviously have waaaaaay too much time on my hands!
After the 1:15 hour drive up to my son’s basketball tourney, they played two final games and won their bracket!! Then the 1:15 hour drive home and everything felt great!
So, what did I do? I went to the gym of course! 5 miles on a spin bike! Felt smooooooth like butter. The walked 800 yards in the pool. I was off on my measurement the other day and only actually did 400 yards. It’s a shorter pool.
Now it’s another :45 min drive up to the airport to pick up wife and daughter! They’ve been gone since Wednesday, so it will be nice to have them home.
Have a great rest of the weekend!
View from the hammock today. Mowed the backyard and trimmed some dead branches from that last snowstorm. No gym today. Hit it pretty hard both weekend days.
Finally see the PT folks on Wednesday. Hoping they don’t try to throw @Ryesgma workout at me!
So glad to hear that you are doing well I love your comment about my workout don't let them throw that nonsense at you . I just called them today and cancelled all my remaining appointments
Good for you @Ryesgma
Pretty blue sky always "ups" my mood.
Do take it easy at PT inthebeginning
Not a competition, you know.
Well... I have started some good stuff at the gym. Elliptical, spin bike and pool walking. I can’t wait to see where my ROM’s are!
Not only the blue sky. Many different birds ‘talking’! Blue Jays, Robins, House Sparrows to name a few... they all have nests in and around our yard!
Pretty blue sky! Nice view from the hammock, you should rest there waaay more often
Go Slow at the gym...you're being watched
Have a good one!
It’s really hard to not add more activity around the yard. The hip feels really great. It’s really just getting the muscles all back up to speed. It’s only a little achy in the glute (piriformis), and that’s only on the elliptical. Other than that, it’s the normal muscle soreness the day after working out.
The pool walking is the best! I would recommend it to everyone that has access to a pool! Takes a ton of weight off the hip while adding just a little resistance from the water. It allows you to really work on your walking form.
Had my PT initial consult today. ROM looks pretty good- see attached. The old Glute is the one spot he wants to focus on as well as the tightness/scar tissue just under the incision. Otherwise, 1 visit a week for a month and I should be good to go.
I have attached the home exercises he sent me home with. Good stuff! Our goal is to get me ready to ride the real bike outside in a couple weeks. I know I could now but we have to follow doctors orders, right @Layla !!??
Let's ask @Josephine what she thinks of your exercise plan at Day 50 post op...
