If you're new a new reader to this blog and are looking for information about what the rehab process is like after ACL surgery, then be sure to check the BLOG ARCHIVE on the left hand side of the screen. I've blogged my progress on a weekly basis after I had my ACL reconstructed. Hopefully you will find it helpful.
Well, Im still only running about 3 km at a time at this point but I have been consistant trying to run 3 times per week. I've started bringing my dog along on these runs as she forces me to run faster. Eventually i'll work up to 5 km. I have about 5 weeks until my planned race.
The knee feels pretty good. I still have some mild soreness in my lower patella after runs where the jumper's knee problem was but it usually goes away the 2nd day after running. I have to remember to massage the tendon when it gets sore. I'll work my way up to 3.5 and 4km per run in the next week or 2.
Getting back into sports is a different issue. It is really a mental issue at this point. I definitely don't have the confidence to go back and start playing anything that requires quick turns and cuts since that is what got me into trouble in the first place. Having to go through another knee injury is not in my immediate plans. Summer registration is coming up in the next couple months so hopefully I will have the courage to go out and give sports a try again.
