So this morning I read that Tom Wallish was back on skis and since we had the exact same surgery at the exakt same time I can't wait to hear how he feels. I know that I could start skiing now, but I also know myself pretty well and since my knee is feeling as good as it does, I know that I would have a super hard time holding back once I was on snow. So I am trying to take the smart approach and wait it out a bit longer. With ACL injuries you muscles are usually OK to ski after 6 months, but the new ACL does get stronger and stronger all the way until 9-10 months. So together with my physio we decided to play it safe and really wok hard on rehab and make sure to be 110% ready once I go back on snow. Usually not the way I choose to do things, but as I plan on skiing for many years to come, I figured that its better to give it a few extra weeks and head back on snow in late October. Although that seems really far away right now!
Off to the gym with a ton of motivation right now!
