I've been incredibly diligent with my physio work, even though the exercises take me about 20-25 minutes to get through. Sometimes I have to split them up and do half of them in the morning and the other half before I go to bed. But, I'm getting them done and that's what counts. I'm seeing progress too. My left knee finally feels like it's almost tracking properly which is fantastic and there is limited pain on extension now. Sometimes there's even no pain. YAY!

I had a nice lazy-ish day yesterday. I had a really hard swim on Sunday morning and spent most of the afternoon lounging around. I really needed it, I was exhausted. 3 days of swimming in a row really tired me out.
Anyway, this is how my week broke down:
Monday: OFF - my knees were still kinda sore so I opted to skip swimming since it was fin day. Did physio work in a.m.
Tuesday: 75 minutes of strength & mobility work in a.m. + 35 minute hard-ish ride on the trainer in p.m.
Wednesday: 1800m swim, then worked a 12 hour day. Did most of my physio work before swimming.
Thursday: Slept in - did my physio exercises and that was about it.
Friday: Hard 2600m swim , physio work in a.m. and pilates in p.m.
Saturday: 1h 20 minute ride in a.m., 900m technique swim in p.m.
Sunday: 2800m swim, followed by a lot of couch time. So. Good.
Total time: 8h 22 minutes including all my physio work. 8100m of swimming. At this rate, I *should* have my swimming mojo back by the new year.
How was your week of workouts?
