Two for Tuesday Injury Update

1. Yesterday I went for what I thought was my last visit to the ortho.  It was not.  I have to go back again in 2 MONTHS.

 He cautioned me about keeping the swelling down so it will heal —compression socks, ice, elevation.  He said I could walk & run on the treadmill, use the elliptical and bike –BUT NO RUNNING OUTSIDE YET!!

He said I am ahead of his healing schedule but of course, not my schedule…it’s a long road to recovery…BE PATIENT.

I left the office depressed and headed to PT.

2.  There I ran for 2 MINUTES straight on the treadmill (with 1 minute walking in between for a total of 20 minutes)!!

No real pain, just the usual stiffness which results in a lack of rhythm and a feeling of awkwardness.

Happy Running!
