I had my ortho visit on Monday and he confirmed that I have posterior tibial tendinopathy and need to still be in the boot. I start physiotherapy this coming Monday and the only thing the surgeon said was “wear the boot for comfort”. Um , ok?
Yes it feels so much better in the boot but I haven’t been told what I can and cannot do at the gym so I decided I am going to try some cardio, because it has been a long 5 weeks without it.
My home gym GoodLife Fitness has all the training tools I need to recover from this injury. Guess what ? Today I used the treadmill! Omg it was so liberating to be able to move and sweat again!
It took 33 minutes to “power walk” that 2 miles but I didn’t care, I was smiling from ear to ear!
I decided I needed to do more so I hopped on my favorite cardio machine – the Octane Fitness lateral elliptical
Another 2 miles done! I felt great and had endorphins flowing after that. It just made my back workout eve better.
Now I know I need to pace myself and not go out guns blazing but this is huge!
I am ready to sign up for the Sulpher Springs 50 miler in May and this is my 2016 goal race. I need to be ready for this race.
I will not become a couch potato, I will get to that race! Come hell or high water!
