All going to plan and I now have what the physiotherapist called "a perfect vastus medialis"!! She also had me using balancing equipment in the gym & I was pretty good at it too! A fairly hard session though, but nothing I couldn't manage!
I followed up with about 30 minutes in the pool by myself. The session was:
5 minutes warm-up
6 x 2:30 Hard
30 second recoveries
5 minutes cool-down.
The water temperature was so high that, by the time I'd finished, my face was as red as a lobster!
By some strange means, everyone in the Physiotherapy department has learned that I still can run a marathon at 81! One of the young male physiotherapists was in the pool with a couple of patients and asked if he could tell everyone my age and what I do! Of course, I said 'Yes'! When I told him I power walked 10km yesterday - just 10 days after surgery - he put his head under water!! So, as well as a good workout, I also had a good laugh!
