It has been 8 weeks since I started PT. Lucky for me I managed to continue running about 60-75 miles/week, but some of them on the Elliptical and all of them easy. I am just now getting back into a bit of speed as my body is 100% and some. I feel so strong. I can do planks, and squats on an upside down bosu holding a medicine ball, and deadlifts, and other exercises that I did not know existed 8 weeks ago. My body has never looked as good (OK, maybe pre Petru, but still!).
My butt is no longer heading south. I ran a few sprints the other day, at a speed that was on par to what I was doing before the injury, and I felt by abs working to lift up my knees, something that has never happened before. This is all really exciting for me, and I can't wait to see how my running will change because of correcting these imbalances. Just last week I started introducing some plyometrics, and have plans to start doing the routine below (starts at 4 min or so):
As far as general running goes, I am slow right now, of course. But, I am going to practice patience as I let someone wise guide me through this season's training. This will be an interesting experience since I am headstrong, very eager to get my speed back, and generally not used to being told what to do. The truth is, I am excited and so ready to go, go, go!
