Had my first-ever physical therapy appointment today, and it went well. It uncovered some surprising nuggets of information which threw me for a loop.
1. My quads aren't firing properly. Actually, my quads are also not that strong - shocking, especially because women generally tend to be quad-dominant. Apparently, I'm an exception.
2. My left hip is stronger than my right. Weird, considering I'm right-handed, so I presumed the opposite would be the case.
3. My core is weaker than I thought! However, when I did a plank for the physical therapist, she said my form was perfect. But there is always room for improvement here.
Overall, I'm really pleased with the results of today's session, and will head in a few times a week for PT. I'm actually really excited, because the corrections my therapist prescribed will make me a stronger, faster athlete. And I'll move closer to getting one of my goals of really tight, lean and strong abs.
