Week beginning 1 April- Happy Easter- phased return.

Happy Easter! I hope you are having a lovely weekend in this gorgeous sunshine.

5 weeks post-op and I am still having to remind myself to be patient with the recovery process.  I am creating my own ‘phased return’ programme by coming back to chair-based classes and Pilates first which my Physio is happy with. The whole process has given me a lot of insight into how it feels to have your movement or strength restricted in some way. One of the things I struggled with was getting up and down off the floor which everyone needs to do to be able to do so many things like gardening, cleaning or playing with grandchildren. Here are some useful training ideas Get up from the floor easily with these simple exercises for 55+ (youtube.com)
