Good Rehab Day

Today I decided to go in to work and ride the stationary bike for a little bit. I was feeling good for the first time in a couple of days and I am only 10 days away from getting off crutches so I knew I needed to do something. After the steam cleaning, it was a rough 2 days. The day after I did the carpets I never left the house. I was hurting most of the day and was really tired from the meds so I opted to stay home and rest. I went to work on Saturday for a few hours, but was beginning to ache a little so I didn't want to push my luck by riding the bike. Today, I feel good so I rode for 20 minutes and did a little over 4 miles. I am not allowed to use any resistance, but they didn't say anything about speed so I am able to pedal as fast as I want. I felt really good when I finished so I headed to the pool to do some water work. I did another 30 minutes in the pool doing deep water rehab. I felt good even after that, but didn't want to push my luck so now I am home resting and watching the NFL Scouting Combine. I don't know what it is about the combine, but I love to watch it every year. I get to see who the sleepers are so when I watch the draft (yes, I watch both days of the draft) I recognize even the late round people. The combine ends early enough for me to flip over to the Oscars so it is quite a big day of TV watching, but i have earned it. I always feel so lazy just sitting around, but I know I need it to be able to recover properly. I have xrays in 10 days so we will see if what I am doing is working.
