So I didn’t really get into what i had to do yesterday in my physical training… it was hard… actually doing anything at the moment is hard but they worked me until it felt like my arms and legs were going to fall off.
I did one test where you had to put small plastic lego sticks in holes and then take them out again. It took 27 second with my right hand. With the left it took over 15 seconds to prove to them I could not even do 1. I will practise every day now so hopefully I can do it next week.
My other training focused on how quick I could manage to walk in 2 min. Without any help from sticks/wheels/studs etc. I managed about 76 m
Yesterday I fell asleep around 8.30pm and woke up at 4.05am (as usual) then I was up at 6am this morning.
Training today started with an hour with a new trainer. I hoped for a massage but realised I was only getting my brain “massaged”. The newest “trainer” was a psychiatrist. My brain was in for an hour of “prodding”. Hard work as well.
Then I had 2 sessions before lunch with my physios. On one I focused on stepping up one leg on a block without falling or falling out to any side. On the other we focused on grip and shoulder strength. I worked with a weight in my left arm! Don’t get too excited weight was less than a toothbrush but it was still hard.
Lunch was early. Around 12. All 4 courses of gluten and lactose free goodness!
Then I had a break! This is where Roger Swain set up this blog for me, and I started to slowly tap in this story. I have promised to work my left hand as much as possible so I am typing with it all the time. (hope it will be worth it in the end)
Afternoon gave me another 2 sessions of walking and playing with balls with my left hand.
Both the trainers were amazed by the strength i showed compared to yesterday.
I learnt how to stand up and sit down with more weight on my left.
Its amazing how much you need to know just to make a simple thing like standing up. There are techniques for everything!!! Leaning forward for example!
Todays highlight was during one of our walks outside we saw the spa swimming pool and the golf driving range. 3 snow flakes fell from the sky!
We had an early dinner at 5.30pm…. still 4 courses of gluten and lactose freeness
Lots of love from a girl now typing with her left hand.
