Yesterday's PT (legs) and upper body

Still taking PT very conservatively since my knee pain hasn't made much progress. Maaaaybe, possibly it felt a tiny bit better today? I don't even know. In the end it's still fairly sore by the end of the day. I'm thinking it's time to invest in a knee brace or two (suggestions?).

Anyway, did my usual leg exercises (bridges with med ball, extensions with resistance band 4 ways, bird dogs) then went to the gym to sneak in a VERY quick upper body workout. I don't normally rest long between sets or exercises, but I had to cut the rest super duper short for time reasons. The no-rest and no lunch before this made it stupidly hard. I struggled a lot on my pull ups (and uh, everything really) :/ hopefully tomorrow is better!

2x12 push ups
8/8/4/4 ---> pull ups/chin ups*/chin ups*/pull ups
3x8 dips
2x10 push ups
...and then I ran out of time!

On the pull ups/chin ups I used 64 lbs counterweight. The "chin ups" were really done with my thumb pointing at my face, palms facing in at each other... not classic chin up form, but I have yet to find an assisted machine that will fit me for that grip. On the dips I used 34 lb counterweight.

The one exciting bit of news is that my swimsuits/goggles/swim caps arrived today! Miraculously both suits fit :D I won't have a chance to check out the pool situation until next week. Then if all goes well, I can finallyinsole me solid cardio in despite this knee crap that's going on. Woo!

Oh and last but not least, BIG apologies for not commenting much lately. Life's been crazy busy, but I've been sneaking quick peeks at everyone's posts and you all are rocking it!
