The Wake Up

I had Physical Therapy this morning early. I was slightly worried about going with snow today, and I’m glad I got up a little early because I saw this when I went outside.

I had to scrape away at the windshield and side window to get going, and then it was slow. Actually snowing harder in Parker than home, but the roads were clear.

PT was interesting. The therapist did some massage on my leg, some ached, some felt good, and I hadn’t thought about it. I’ll definitely need to add that to my repertoire of things to do. I did a few exercises, all of which were easy, but when I talked with her, she mentioned a few things. One is that I want that tendonitis to go away, so I want to go slow.

That makes sense, and as I went through the litany of exercises, I could feel it aching a bit inside the knee. It made me think I’ve pushed a touch hard on the biking, so I’ll slow that down. I’ll keep doing it, maybe even longer, but with less resistance.

I finished up with the TENS machine, getting some stimulation and ice, which was interesting.

Feeling good, though swollen. Back in bed with ice water around the knee now.
