Been A While!

I haven’t posted since last September when I was starting the semester. I made it thru our fall semester. I couldn’t jump at all but I had students demonstrate and the class understood and would listen to my instruction. Made it through Christmas and a move. One day I was at my moms house and left something upstairs. Next thing I knew I stopped and realized that I just ran up the stairs!! I couldn’t believe it. I am by no means a runner but I can run and we just started Spring semester and I am able to jump. I am hesitant and don’t overdo it but I can! I am trying to do some cardio b/c I want to drop some weight. I didn’t put on much after my injury but I did before and wonder if that contributed. It was like 10 pds not 100 but still. So I am doing spurts of exercise nothing too strenuous and trying to do more pilates and not let my ankle stop me.

The most upsetting thing about my injury this time around was my PT. I felt they were just in it for the money. I had to stop going b/c my visits were up and it wasn’t worth paying for. If it was I would have but I was not pleased at all. So I am seeing the trainer at my work and getting ultrasound and massage. I still have a hump where I was sewn back together and not sure about that so working on the scar tissue is my main concern. We shall see!

Cool. You had that instinctive “run” impulse, and the body just kicked in and delivered as it should — and normally would have prior to the injury. You’ve got to see that as encouraging.

I’m sorry to hear about your bad PT experience. I’ll be heading to therapy soon enough myself — so we’ll see how it goes.

All best!

Good Luck in therapy! Hopefully your experience will be better. Massage is great for your achilles. Hopefully they will do that for you. Scar tissue is the enemy!! Let me know how it goes.
