Today I had my first visit to the physio gym. I was only in there for about twenty minutes but it was fun.
I was a bit worried about it, especially as I don't have any gym wear or proper trainers, but I wore lose jeans and t-shirt and canvas deck shoes. My pain consultant said that was fine, as long as I felt comfortable.
Well, I was introduced to Karen the physio nurse and she took me through my warm up - 2 minutes on a bike, 2 minutes on pullies and 3 minutes on the big gym ball. Then she took me through the cool down and the exercises I can do at home which involved lying down... definitely my kind of exercise!!!
Although the sessions were literally only a few minutes, I could feel the muscles in my legs and arms working and the backs of my legs feel tight now, but not uncomfortably so.
All in all it was a positive step forward and I'm going out at the weekend to buy some trainers and trousers and I'm very much looking forward to next week!
I might actually sleep well tonight too!
Take care of you xxx
