I'm really excited today. I have a physio friend of mine coming over to help me understand physiologically what heavy metal I have inside me and how it affects movement and mobility now and heading into the future.
We will also talk about my return to upper body conditioning. I'll be working with Theraband to start with...(flexible rehab bands with differing strengths) in order to build up to using actual steel.
I'm able to start doing actual gym workouts for lower body so I'll be heading into the gym next week.
I believe that getting into the gym for lower body will help me rehab my upper body because of the neurological stimulation to the upper body.
Obviously this will be an advantage in prepping my upper body for actual weight training.
In the meantime I continue my walking program and will do my 4+km fartlek (speedplay) today.
WOW, I'm real excited about the future and each day is a big adventure for me.
I'm grabbing my 2nd chance, (although my friends tell me I must be on about life 16 by now, yes, yes.. I've been the adventurous type throughout my life and I don't understand sitting still...this has resulted in a few closecalls but nothing like what I've just been through.) with both hands and running with it as fast as I can.
Ummm....is there another way?
Life is a fantastic exciting, wonderful adventure.....IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO.
Go find something.....well, go on.
