Site Housekeeping

A quick site update: I have created a new page on the blog call “Videos.” You can see the link to the Videos page in the main navigation above.  This page includes all videos posted to date and will include all videos I post going forward.

Giddyup! – I RAN, for the first time, ever.

Just a quick note to say that yesterday, approximately 12 weeks post op I RAN for the first time, ever.  I was at the gym working out and decided to give it a shot.  After that, I ran (har har) to the locker room and grabbed my phone to capture a video.  Not the best quality video ever  — I had to prop my phone on some equipment at the gym to record this; but I really wanted to document this.

A great start!  It felt really odd since my foot did not clear the ground a couple of times and I have not experienced the sensations associated with running before. I showed this video to my therapist this morning and asked me to keep practicing so that I can get to the point where I can run on the treadmill.
