I walked into a store to exchange a pair of shorts. I walked out shortless and mentally, in a bad place. Every bit of self-confidence was ripped from me. It took just one glimpse in the mirror and my whole perspective changed.

By taking/teaching my classes, doing PT twice a week and staying consistent, my recovery has been flying by. I am completely amazed at how the body heals. Blood flow, nutrients, hydration and mobility - it all has an impact on your body’s ability to recover. Not just after a major surgery, but even after a tough workout out or event. A lot of people dedicate time to training, but not to recovering.
Today marks three weeks post op. If I look too much to others and compare myself to other people’s recovery I can get discouraged or maybe cocky. But what I have to realize that this is MY journey and I need to do what I need to do, when I need to do it. I have a lot of support from all different directions and look forward to the next few weeks of making progress. There is no doubt that I will have to be reigned in at some point from feeling so good, but that is why I have a physical therapist that knows where I was and where I want to be.
