I had my hubby drop me off at 24 hour fitness so I could get in some cardio. Did two 500m intervals on the rower. Had to rest my right leg periodically since it was sticking out to the side, holding my right foot off the ground, while my left leg was strapped into the rower. Then did some of the standard exercises I’ve been doing at home - leg lifts, pushups, weight lifting while sitting or kneeling, ab exercises, … Then I got on the recumbent bike and did a mile. It is REALLY hard to get my little left foot strapped into the bike tight enough to be able to pull on the pedal effectively. At least the bike had a middle platform I could rest my right leg on - LOL! I tested out resting my booted right foot on the pedal to see if that bugged it and it did, a tiny bit, so I mainly let it rest on the middle platform. However, it was much easier to pedal with the right foot at least providing a little downward weight while the left pulled up
I did email my doc when I got home to see if it was OK to rest the foot on the pedal since I am still NWB. He said that was OK as long as I’m on a recumbent bike, and I just REST it. That’s good since it makes life much easier for my left foot
It was great getting in a decent cardio workout - even if I am back into wimpy land for how much of a workout I can do. I’ll do it again next Tuesday when my other friends are doing the High Intensity Interval training class that I was doing before surgery. Can’t wait to get back to that - but that is months away. At least I can say hi to all of them and do my own little workout while they do HIIT.
