Another 10K in the Books!

This past Saturday I ran in the Sole of the City 10K race in Baltimore! It was a beautiful 70 degrees and the course was just perfect! What a great way to spend a Saturday morning!

Israel National Team

This past weekend I got an amazing opportunity to play for the Israel National Lacrosse team in Kings Point, NY in a showcase. It was so fun to help spread awareness for Israel lacrosse and the game, meeting new friends and just enjoying the sport! It’s unbelievable to think where lacrosse has taken me, even after 3 ACL surgeries.  We lost in double overtime, it was such an exciting game and weekend and I was very happy to be part of such an awesome program. I am so thankful that I’m able to continue playing at a competitive level!

Back At It

The lacrosse season has begun! Yesterday was my first game of the season with some of my fellow blue jays. The weather was perfect, the energy was electric and it was SO much fun! As I’m sitting here writing this, my hips are burning, my arms are struggling and my knee’s are sore. But as always, it’s a great day to be a jay!

A Little Crazy

The arctic weather is coming in hot (or cold?) this week in Baltimore. I decided to embrace the freezing weather and go for a nice run. I literally could not feel my face!!

Day 1: complete

My first day back at physical therapy was great!  I was able to bend my knee to 78 degrees for the first time after keeping it straight for two weeks!  Now, this is where the game starts.  Yes, being able to keep my leg straight is very important but bending is  where it gets tough.  I have to do my exercises everyday which include:  heel slides, wall slides, ankle pumps, quad sets and straight leg raises.  It is very painful, but I gotta do it!  My goal is to get back to school and not have to be on crutches because I am living on the third floor, yikes!!

Here is my knee bending at around 78 degrees!

Rolling right along

Today I got my stitches out!  Everything is looking great minus the blistering I have around the incision sites, which will heal.  I have the clearance to start physical therapy and I will be starting tomorrow morning!  The quicker I start, the faster I will be able to walk with no brace or crutches!  What I am not excited about it the pain from working the new ACL.  This also is slowing down the rehab process on my left knee, which is almost at 4 months post-op.  Finally I have something to do during the day besides laying around!

 

Stitches out!

One step at a time

After two weeks of being a captive in my own room, I was feeling brave enough to try and go downstairs.  Since my left leg is still pretty weak from ACL surgery in April, I have been fearing the steps.  I sucked it up and went down the stairs extra carefully and finally was out of my room!  I was able to lay on the couch and go in the kitchen, I have some of my independence back!

And Monday I get my stitches out! Wahoo!
