Motivation Monday: The ‘milestones’ edition

I’m a sucker for milestones. If you’re reading this, it’s likely you are, too (why else do thousands of adults gather at road races on any given weekend, if not for the sense of accomplishment that comes from crossing an actual finish line, then having someone drape a medal around your neck?). And I’ve got a big one at lunchtime today: My last-ever physical therapy session!

Happy graduation day to my knee!

More than five months after tearing my tearing my ACL in January, I am finally celebrating my knee’s “graduation” from physical therapy. In February and March, PT meant regaining use of my right quad, which had “fallen asleep” after surgery, and regaining my strength in said quad (it’s hard to get stronger when you’re napping). In April, PT meant working on agility exercises, which have helped me not only get physically ready to ski again, but to mentally get over my anxiety about doing so, which proved to be a great reason to keep up at least occasional PT appointments (once ever couple weeks, with additional workouts on my own).

I will leave PTSAC feeling quicker and stronger than before my injury, and feeling motivated to start living a new beginning.

What’s motivating you this week?
