6 weeks post op. Trust your instincts, listen to your body, take care of yourself. Working from the ground up to build back everything that's been lost. Trust the process.
Keep your head up, stay focused, never give up, and success will follow.
Keep tabs on my insta story today and follow along for a day of rehab!

This one goes out to all the tiny fans out there. Did you know cyclocross starts in just under 6 months?!? 😍 I'm starting my mental strength training now and look forward to another year on the CX circuit. First tho, let's enjoy Spring and Summer.

To go from the most fit and strong I've ever been while on the bike, to spending most my days recovering on the couch hasn't been easy. Feeling my fitness dwindle and my leg shrink can be defeating. 4 weeks + 4 days post op I'm happy my CPM machine days are long gone, I can walk without crutches (at home to start), and I'm starting to move...a little more. My independence is increasing, and I've made friends along the way. Some days hurt like hell and I want to cry and scream in frustration, while other days feel easy breezy. Not only am I learning incredible patience, but love. Love for the body I have and how far it got me, love for my husband and his will to keep giving (even if there are days we're on ends with each other), and love for my community, my tribe, that has helped get me through these last 4 weeks.

To you it seems simple, to me it's beyond that. After a talk with my surgeon last week to make sure I was doing everything correctly, he told me people usually get in trouble when they try to get back to their normal lives. My normal life is riding bikes outside, breathing fresh air. Riding bikes is how I socialize, it's a part of me. I didn't realize how down I was until today. First time on my OWN bike. It was hard, it felt awkward, it wasn't pretty, it DIDN'T hurt and my heart, mind, and soul smiled. 27 minutes, 24 days post-op

Does Thankful Tuesday exist? If it doesn't, today I make it a thing. I'm so thankful to have @bigairchris as my right hand man for nearly ten years. The last 3 weeks have been really challenging for me and for him as well. He's become full time nurse, getting me in and out of bed, making me breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day and bringing it to me in bed or on the couch. He's been my driver (along with uber drew @drewyoung84 ) taking me and picking me up from all my appointments, he's cleaning the kitchen on a daily basis and taking care of my favorite furry friend nugget. He rushes home after work to attend to me, he's skipping out on fun with friends. Today I am thankful I don't have to go through this alone, today I am thankful to have such a caring husband by my side.

Wondering what a labral tear ACTUALLY looks like? I present to you my tear.

Motivation Monday. Powering up Mt. Krumpit at my favorite cross race of the year @jinglecross ——
Today I look for inspiration from those who have travelled my same path and come out on top. Surgery is not for the faint of heart, it comes with accomplishments and set backs, but gives you more drive to fight for your comeback.
