Four weeks has passed since my surgery and I feel great. This time around is completely different then my first ACL surgery 9 months ago. No swelling, no pain, and basically full range of motion. The hard part, feeling this good and still not being able be active.
Lots of time on the bike- legs lifts – hamstring exercises and pool time is what has been occupying my time.
Finally the incisions have completed closed up….which allows me to rock the Kinesio Taping.
It has almost been 3 weeks since my 2nd ACL surgery. This time around it has been a lot easier. My range of motion is already at 140….the first surgery it took me two months to get to 140 degrees. It is nothing I have done, but rather this surgery was a lot less invasive then the first.
My time has been occupied with work, rehab, prepping for next ski season and more rehab. My team (USA National Team) has had a couple conference call meetings over the past few weeks discussing sponsors opportunities and future growth of the Telemark racing. We need this sport to GROW!!! The goal…Olympics!! There is still quite bit of chatter about Telemark Racing making it to the Olympics.
In the meantime…I need to get better..Still only rehabbing cautiously at this point. More to come..
