Well, between overdoing my resistance on the stationary bike (I increased it faster than my PT suggested – I blame this on my MP3 player) and walking the tow rope with my 6 year old two weekends in a row, I have inflamed the heck out of my right hip. I am having some sharp pulling pains around the joint, mostly in the back of the hip down low. Not constantly – but enough that it is troublesome. I also have a good amount of muscle soreness all down the back of my right leg. So, I am going to modify my PT routine this week to elimnate some of the weight bearing as follows:
- No biking or walking (for exercise)
- Lap swimming, 30 minutes, 3 x this week
- Continue at home exercises- as long as I don’t have pain during the exerciseitself
- Continue gym routine – but use very low weight – stop if it hurts
At least I was ahead on my bike training. Hopefully, I can start that back up next week if I behave myself this week.
