Today is the definitive sign that no amount of pain, limp or discomfort will stand in my way, or maybe it is the definitive sign that I am an idiot. You be the judge! When I was in college, a bunch of us went out to a bar/ pool hall/ arcade etc for the night. My friend and I discovered a fun arcade game called Dance Dance Revolution, the explanation of DDR from wikipedia is as follows: "In Dance Dance Revolution, a player must move his or her feet to a set pattern, stepping in time to the general rhythm or beat of a song. During normal gameplay, arrows scroll upwards from the bottom of the screen and pass over stationary, transparent arrows near the top (referred to as the "guide arrows" or "receptors"). When the scrolling arrows overlap the stationary ones, the player must step on the corresponding arrows on the dance platform."
Since our initial DDR day, my friend and I have grown and matured, and gone on to have 2 children each. today, we took the kids to an amusement park, which happened to have an arcade, which happened to have DDR. We had to play.
We dumped the kids with the husbands and played, and played, and played, until we were both dripping sweat and I was limping! But we had a blast!! The good thing is that other than the psoas trouble, the left hip handled the jumping like a star, no joint pain, no soreness, right was sore though. But we had a blast! I think this is a good sign, P always jokes that 'next time', we will start plyometrics, which would be some jumping and landing...and I laugh at the absurdity. But today, I did it!!!
I am really happy with my left hip right now, I know I am in pain from the psoas, but if I were to judge the success of the surgery now, I would say A+! And DDR helped to prove this!
