I got back on the drums last week for the first time and everything felt fine with using my right leg on the kick drum. I will be practicing a lot this week and next week getting ready for the tour. Looking forward to playing shows and playing songs off our new record.

Post Surgery 4 Weeks
I have not written a blog post about my knee lately because all has been well and I haven't had any new developments. This weekend I got on a spinning bike for the first time and actually rode for 35 minutes and broke a sweat. My knee felt great but even better was to actually feel like I got a cardiovascular workout in. I have been doing my stretching and trying to loosen up my hamstrings and my Illiotibial band because they have always been tight due to running and playing drums. I have also been doing leg presses and ball squats to strengthen my quadriceps. I think I am almost ready to start resuming all leg exercises and get back into yoga as well. The biggest problem with yoga will be sitting down on my knees. I don't know when they will want me to start doing that.
