Just moved past 6 months

Last Friday was the 6 month (26 weeks) mark since my injury..I have been in Florida since Jan. 1…As you would expect, walking much better than I was 2 months ago…still not completely normal. I can just barely get injured heel off of the ground with one leg calf-raise effort. It doesn’t bother me at all swinging a golf club, but after about 15 holes or so it starts to get tired walking, and my buddies say they can tell because I start limping a bit. That’s playing in a cart, not hiking the entire round.
For those of you behind me on the trail, keep the faith, keep doing what you are supposed to be doing. Don’t overdo it. It will happen for you.

  1. Keep at it Dan! I haven’t walked the dogs for about a month and walked them today (usually my hubby does the dog walking so when he’s out of town I do it :) ). Last time I walked the dogs I had to keep switching sides of the street since the up/down angle of the driveways was bugging my achilles. This time I had no problems at all! Another step forward in the road to a fully functional foot.

  2. I know what you mean! When I started walking I found I had to be very mindful of the crown in the roadway. No sidewalks where I live, and by the time I was walking in November, very little traffic, so I could pretty much walk right down the middle. The slant of the pavement had a big effect on how my ankle felt.
