Snow is Falling!!!

OK- so it has been a great few weeks as the weather is changing and winter is rapidly approaching us. Time to break out the winter Jackets and get all my equipment lined up. Want to give a few shout outs to a few companies that have recently helped me out. Burt’s Bees….Thanks for the lip balm and other product that Burts recently provided. Also, Kinesio tape.. Freaking love that stuff. Seriously if you have not tried this stuff, you have to check it out!!! It works.

Ski Life– Getting closer to actually getting on skis. Still hitting Rehab hard with weights and running coming next week. It has been 12 weeks since ACL surgery and feeling good. Looking forward to actually running next week once the doc give me the GO.
Abasin and Loveland have opened and the skiing in Summit County has started. Kind of hard watching your friends dig out the skis and go catch a few runs while I’m off to the gym for some rehab. Soon though!!!
Thanks again to my newest supporters… Burt’s Bees and Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Tape!!!! Week 9 Post Surgery

Woaaa!! Huge fan of Kinesio Tape everybody. I highly recommend it for anybody that might have a nagging injury or just needs relieve from pain or swelling. Kinesio Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Edema, and to treat pain.
I have been getting taped by my therapist over at Howard Head Sports Medicine. There is for sure a “method” to applying this tape so don’t just go throwing this tape on your injury. Check out a youtube video for some methods for applying this tape.
Week 9!! Going well. Rehab rehab and more rehab. Range of motion is almost back to normal. Still have to be patient with attacking it in the weight lifting department. Although the swelling is minimal and my knee feels great, the graph is still very weak!! Cant wait for the doc to give me the ok to start pushing it.

Week 8 Post ACL surgery

Been taking it easy this past week. Really focusing on my Range Of Motion. I can see why the doc has ordered me to take it easy on the PT these next few weeks…. I pushed it the other day and was extremely sore right where the new graph is. Yup, back it off a bit.
Thanks to my newest supporter, Burts Bees!!! Got a bunch of product the other day from the boys over at Burts. Dig the lip balm for sure.
