Hate negotiating salaries… Always feel like I’m leaving $$’s on the table. Not sure that I even want this gig, so I asked pretty high.
Nary even a murmur in reply.
Damn! Should have shot even higher.
Cruised into PT today on one crutch which is hella easier to manage than 2 crutches.
PT looked up and shook his head. Not pleased.
1 - I was using crutch on the wrong side
2 - I’m supposed to be exerting no more than 20#’s on my injured leg
That’s close enough to 10kg for you non-Ameticans…..
He broke out an analog scale (What? No body fat measurement? No Bluetooth connection to my FitBit and iPhone 6+?) and had me step on it. Let me tell ya. 20 pounds is NOTHING!!!
Then he lectured me about letting surgically repaired surfaces heal.
PT is just like CrossFit. I pay good money to be abused.
and then posts their workout…. Really bro? You worked up to to a set of 5x225# deadlifts?
Congratulations amigo. When do you actually start lifting?
I’d never be a wiseass to someone who is genuinely trying, but when you are 20 years younger, lift much less than I do, and lipoff it means you are genuine…a genuine jackass.
and I run a shitload faster too.
and walking on only one crutch.
Might be overdoing it but am feeling pretty good.
Same PT as my shoulder surgery rehab. “How were you feeling before
surgery? Oh! (Reading surgeon’s report) 50 loose bodies in your hip? I
bet you were hurting.”
Doing well but it ways aches to get poked and torqued.
Learned I can still do pull-ups and upper body. Good news, but think
I’ll wait at least a week post-procedure to get back. Rest and heal. A
Good to know I can get back at it when time is right.
Just wish sleep would start today…
In that danger zone. Things hurt but nowhere near as bad as they could. Yes, I should count my blessings, but I’m worried about overdoing it.
It has happened. If it don’t hurt why not push harder?
Talking to myself here.
When I think of myself, 23 years old is old.
When I think of others, 23 years old is young.
Shit… Can it even remember then
Usual recovery day. Finally slept last night. Woke up at 10am feeling
alive. Semi-showered (can’t fully shower for 2 weeks) and felt CLEAN!
Then cycled downward. Sore, upset stomach. Happens but it unnerved my
wife to see such a swing.
Now more than ever is the time to eat right. Grains cause inflammation
that propogates through the body, but junk food sings it’s
anti-depressant - all will be better - song.
Recovery is a cycle. Good thing - today was better than yesterday.
