Injury Recovery Report: Week 5


There has actually been some improvement in the range of motion of my thumb and knee. Next week, I finally see an occupational therapist, on Wednesday, August 2nd, for my thumb. Still another week of waiting to see a physical therapist for my foot and knee on Monday, August 7th.

I will have a better idea, once I consult with the two therapists, if I will be able to resume training in time to compete in one or two of the final time trials of the local Mid-America Time Trial Series on September 2nd or 17th. I have been off my trike for seven weeks now. If my layoff continues through September, I will only be able to try for the last race on the September 17, a 9-mile time trial.
