100 Word Challenge: Strong

Survived my first out-patient physical therapy session on Tuesday. I want in with trepidation, but as I’m wont to do, my worry was for nothing.

I came out a little sore but encouraged. The therapist said I was doing well and that he didn’t think I’d have any trouble getting back full range of motion well within a couple of months… maybe sooner. 

He told me that I had a “solid” 100-degree bend in my knee. The ultimate goal is 120-degrees. Think being able to kick back and hit your butt, or do squats

I told the therapist that I wanted to be able to ride my bike by the time my therapy sessions were over. He said that was a doable goal.

My current goal is to get strong and steady enough to walk half a mile. Right now, I mostly make laps up and down my hallway and trek to the mailbox.

This knee replacement thing may work out okay after all.

This week’s word is:


What to do:

Using “strong” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.
