Good progress

I was really anxious going to physio therapy yesterday. My initial session was REALLY difficult so I wasn't very happy heading in.
Much to my surprise my PT said I was making very good progress! She gave me some more advanced exercises to do which I found quite effortless. I'd been "standing at the bar" (my windowsill) doing them for at least a week without thinking about them.
We are going to continue focusing on my extension therapy. I thought it was still pretty bad but she was very pleased with how much better it was from last week. She did point out that I was doing TOO MANY repetitions which was probably contributing to my pain levels. This afternoon I managed to extend the TIME of my extension rather the NUMBER. I'm really surprised how nice that bit of stretch in those thigh muscles feels when I got walk about after. I managed to walk NORMALLY down the stairs without the cane, then the length of the house.
I'm my own worse enemy at times, LOL
