Introducing Kimba 2.0
I have graduated from Physical therapy!
In order to return to my active lifestyle, I said all along I would train SMART. I listened to my PT, did my exercises, walked on my treadmill, attempted to start eating healthy.
I’ve been told by two doctors that running will progress the arthritis in my knees. (I also can tell I have arthritis in my elbows.) Well, I can either not run and have arthritis, or I can run (therefore keeping my sanity) and have arthritis.
Does anyone remember the opening of the “Six Million Dollar Man”? “Steve Austin, astronaut, a man barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him, we have the technology. We have the capability to make the worlds first Bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better. Stronger. Faster.”
I have taken that opening to heart. I am going to rebuild Kimba 2.0 into a better athlete than before. Better. Stronger. Faster. (Not sure about the faster part.) SMARTER.
I am going to incorporate other exercises that are not weight bearing. I am learning how to ride my bike!
Today I am going to work on a training schedule. I return to work next week, so I need to get back into a training routine. Perhaps I will even go for a small jog at some point!
Have you made any changes to training due to injury?
