My foot is still not in shape for running, but I have increased my walking exercise. I try to walk 1 mile every evening after work (time permitting) and managed 6 walks this week. Today I slowly walked 3 miles.
The pain after walking is getting less and less, but after each physical therapy session I want to curl up and cry. It’s not quite this bad, but the sight of Dr H or Dr A entering the room makes me cringe. And both look so innocent. Like they can’t harm an ant. But they have no pity with my leg and foot… I wish I had my Stick and my foam roller, but both are on a truck somewhere waiting to be shipped to my new apartment.
I am now on to a series of strength exercise for my ankle and foot. It’s not running, but it makes me feel much better. At this point any exercise is welcome.
On the bright side: I am moving again, albeit slowly! 🙂 And this coming week I’ll be joining a mixer with the local Team in Training group. Can’t wait to join the Team again for another season (even if that means I am walking a half marathon). But don’t you worry, training will only start at the end of May, I am just going to meet the Team.
