Back on my feet!

Thursday, July 04, 2019

My boot has been swapped out for a less obvious "brace". That means the bone has healed, and now the muscles in my foot need to tighten up and gain strength. I started physical therapy yesterday. Twelve weeks of exercises, and working on walking again. I took a walk around the block today (I was supposed to go only 1/4 mile.) and was surprised that even the muscles of my right leg were complaining. I guess building back up to 5+ miles a day is going to take a while.
It felt good to get back out on the sidewalk and enjoy the sunshine. It's particularly nice with all the flags and decorations for Independence Day fluttering in the breeze.
Happy 4th of July to all of you!

    Take care and don't push yourself too far. Relapse should not be invited!
