gradumaction! and farewell!
Haha I like making up words. Anyway, today was my last PT visit! *tear* In the last 14 months (yes 14!) I have graduated from physical therapy TWICE! Yikes! I went to PT last year for 5 months because I started a week after my surgery.

Hahaha ok not really, but I only have 1….1 PT visit left!!

Knee was a little stiff after sitting all day at work, but felt good to be out on the field. Fielding was good - no problems. Batting was fine, except for the fact that I went 0 for 2. First at bat was a...
So today is the 18 week mark and I feel AWESOME! My left knee is much MUCH further along at 18 weeks than my right knee was at 18 weeks last year! I did another interval workout last night at the gym - 1.5 miles in 18 minutes. This is slow BUT it is an interval workout so walk/jog takes longer. I told my PT about my progress and she wants me to try jogging for 3-4 minutes and walking for 1...
