What’s been your go-to summer activity or big summer adventure?
I had ACL reconstruction in May, so I spent my summer rehabilitating my knee. I was running a race against time to get myself ready to be on snow for this winter. My normal routine of soccer, tennis, and running was replaced with Peloton, indoor rowing, weightlifting, and lots of physical therapy.
I can’t say it’s been the most fun off-season I’ve had, but I’m grateful for the wonderful care that I’ve received from my surgeon and physical therapy team. All signs point to being on snow this winter with most of my bits and pieces working.
If I had to pick something that’s been my “go to,” it’s indoor cycling since it’s really the only thing I’m cleared to do for long durations. My eyes roll as I type this. I’ve always loathed being one of those “Peloton people,” but it’s the best outlet to pass the hours and let out frustration and aggression. It also has metrics and that’s helpful for me to mark progress vs. my pre-surgery fitness.
