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.
