Getting Back On Track
Okay, so the blahs are over (for now) and I have been resting the knee, doing physical therapy and getting stronger. I am teaching Monday night (woo hoo) and I am working on getting well quick so I can get back on the mat and actually DO karate. The physical therapist was pleased with the movement of my kneecap, so that is positive. I also did 4" steps today. I also did calf raises (which we do in karate quite a bit, as well as standing and balancing on one leg). I can tell you right now one of the best things I've done is the stretching. Our karate school believes strongly in stretching and that and the fact that I do karate and have exercised regularly over the past eight years means my recovery will be that much faster. Woo Hoo!
