I'm having a lot of trouble with the hamstring curls and hip adductions. For some reason my leg just doesn't respond the way it should. I'm not too happy about that.
The good thing is is that everything else doesn't give me that much trouble. I get tired doing leg lifts, but I think that's because my quad just isn't there yet. I compared my quads the other day and my left quad is at least an inch or two smaller than my right one. I don't even fill in my pants the same way! It's so strange.
This month has been rough scheduling my physical therapy sessions. I can only do one a week, and I'm starting to get worried about how long my disability lasts. I think I need to contact HR about that. I don't want to go back to work if I'm not okay to do so, but I really need to work so I can have that extra cash.
Rough times are ahead . . .
