7 Months Today! Update

June 11, 2014 | |

Hi everyone,

Today marks seven months since I went under the knife to repair my torn left Achilles. I’m happy to say, I’m about 80 per cent back to normal! ¬†Sorry it’s been so long since my last update. Since then I’ve

  • Gotten medically cleared for full activity and finished PT
  • Ran a 5k warrior dash (doing another this weekend, and a 4mile spartan in July)
  • Biking to work everyday
  • Played some softball
  • Ran a 7:30 mile
  • Planning for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge 10k for my one year anniversary of surgery.

There is still some morning stiffness, or tension after a lot of activity, air travel, or sitting at my desk, and the scar is pretty dry. So, I’m keeping up with stretching and at-home PT, plus athletic training.

Reading your stories continues to be a major source of motivation and inspiration. For those that are just starting out, know that with hard work, patience, and a positive attitude, you CAN GET THERE!! ¬†And that the journey continues …

good luck with you recoveries and keep writing!
