Tuesday Trainer and YMX Giveaway

Exciting news -- I have clearance from my doctor for swimming, cycling and walking!  I've had the chance to get back on the trainer the past two mornings (thanks to Little A Bomb's improved sleeping)...and I'm starting three weeks of physical therapy to get me back to running - yahoo!  My wonderful orthopedic surgeon said there was nothing I could not do - running, hiking, skiing - only thing he wouldn't recommend is for me to join a bball team (never have, why start now?).  He did say, however, in order to help prevent more damage, cross training and building strong core and leg muscles would help stabilize my knees.  Prior to my (second) torn meniscus, I really did not do enough cross training, so that will be a focus going forward.




Hold on to your hats Chicagoland- super windy this morning - with gusts up to 50 mph!  I'm grateful to have a trainer (and a treadmill) in the basement:)


Still have a couple days to enter my giveaway for this beautiful YMX tri-pocket jersey...

  2. YAY! Glad you are getting back at it! (and I am VERY jealous of your basement 'mill right now - can't quite make myself get out in that wind...)

  5. Hurray!

    My only basement equipment is dusty fitness videos and a (currently) dusty recumbent exercise bike. Bleh. Thankfully, we don't have QUITE the wind down here that you guys do.

    I made one cyber Monday purchase, snagging a bike jersey for my SIL for $17. :)

  6. That's great news! I know how much of a mental lift that can give an injured/recovering athlete.

    I did ALL of my kids' shopping yesterday online. Feels good to be done!
