It’s been another week and another PT appointment (number 3)…and it sounds like it was my last. My PT gave me more exercises to do (I can now balance for 1 min) and signed me up for the “Ankle Strength Group” which is a group that meets twice a week in the local physio gym and does one hour of strengthening exercises under the watchful eyes of the PTs. I still walk with a little limp but my gait is slowly improving and will get back to normal once I can roll nicely over my bad foot.
I did about 10 slow (slight) heel raises under the PT’s observation and am supposed to do 2 lots of 8 each day, twice a day. I also still continue with stretching my tendon, and practice rolling over the foot nicely - controlled poised walking - for at least 2min a day. Finally, she showed my boyfriend how to massage my scar (that was actually almost soothing).
Feeling positive, even though still about 2 months away from my first run apparently. Boo! Come on clock and hurry up I need some endorphins!
