What is your story about?
I've injured and had surgery to repair my meniscus multiple times. My recovery approach involved gradually increasing volume and weight with unilateral leg training. Ultimately, I was able to go from surgery to running a 5k in just 6 months.
What was the timeline for returning to running?
All told, I had the surgery in November, and ran a 5k the following May. I would have probably run a bit earlier, but it's Canada and I didn't want to slip in the snow. Most of my run practice leading up to that was treadmill in April and early May.
Since the surgery, I've done a lot of running, hiking, cross country skiing, snowboarding, etc etc, and everything's been awesome. Just no more downhill skiing :)
