I worked out for the first time in two weeks yesterday. It was the first time I had worked out since my surgery on May 1st. I felt great afterwards. I took my time, didn't rush anything. My doctor only wants me doing cardio until the beginning of June. I need my incision to heal a bit longer before weights can be incorporated into my routine. I walked on my new treadmill yesterday at a 3 mile pace for 30 mins. I also did 15 mins on the elliptical. It felt good to be moving again. I have been walking in the evenings with my dh and ds ever since I got home from the hospital, but this is the first time I've walked this pace in a while. I usually can do 3.6 or greater on the treadmill. I'll get back there.

Good for you! :bravo: You did fantastically for the first time back in the gym! Don't push too hard - you still have lots of healing to do. But isn't it great to be back moving again? :D
