The Road to ACL Recovery (Day 92)

The road to ACL recovery is full of peaks and plateaus. Excitement over sudden improvements should be tempered, and disappointment over lack of progress should be limited. It’s a game of patience, and with hard work, improvement comes in time. 

I haven’t posted here in three weeks, and that is because progress had been minimal. I continued to add weight resistance to my rehab exercises, but hadn’t noticed any significant changes in my quality of life.

On Thursday I had a breakthrough. We started doing lateral movements, quick steps on the ground called “the ladder.” This is really exciting, and will be my focus for the next month as I move towards the goal of jugging, just in time for some pleasant early evening summer runs across the Williamsburg bridge.
