Torn ACL Recovery Podcast – Month 24

On this encore episode of the podcast, I discuss recovery from year one to year two, and how this past year was different from the first post-op. As I said last year, it’s wild to think it’s now been 24 months since ACL surgery!

I’ll discuss my observations at about…

Torn ACL Recovery Podcast – Month 12

It’s wild to think it’s been one year since my ACLR procedure. Time is odd that way, I suppose. The last year has been filled with many ups and downs—emotionally and physically—many of which were tied to the rehab and recovery process.

On this final podcast of the series I…

Torn ACL Recovery Podcast – Month 7

It starts to sound like a broken record as each month passes, but it’s funny how time works! I’ve just hit the month 7 mark of the ACLR rehab process. It was somewhere around the month 6 mark I stopped thinking about my knee so much, and after another month,…

I couldn’t wait to listen to bands like

Torn ACL Recovery Podcast – Month 3

Three months in and I’m feeling better than I have since the injury itself back in March. While the graft is technically at it’s weakest point, I’m feeling much better. And, I now understand how some start to lay off PT and/or rush back into sport too quickly.

Things change…

Torn ACL Recovery Podcast – Week 8

A big milestone came this week! Two months. Feels pretty good to be here and I’m thankful for feeling generally better all around at this point in the recovery process.

As I’ve mentioned before, not a lot changes quickly at this point. Daily routines have settled into (new) PT exercises…

Spring 2020 Update: I’ve gone through and made sure all links are updated and some details cleaned up. I’m still using this same setup at home for training sessions and it’s working great. Here’s to getting after it!

It’s been said time and time again that cycling is one of…
