So after tearing my ACL on Dec 16th of last year and having a patellar autograft on April 18th, and getting my surgeon's OK yesterday, I ran today for the first time since my injury!!!!
Nothing real fantastic but holy crap am I outta shape.....
All treadmill work.....walked 4min @ 4.5mph, ran 1min at 7.5mph x 4 cycles. I made it through and felt a bit stronger and more confident each running interval.
Home alone as the wife and daughters are shopping so sharing with you guys....just emailed my PT, too.
Sitting with the ice pump running to make sure I don't swell up!!
Doc thinks it is very realistic that I can return to playing soccer for our January season.
Also thinks it is realistic for me to be waterskiing then!!!! Might have to head to FL
