Another milestone of sorts. I am officially out of the boot starting today! My ankle feels fairly good, and I’ve been walking around outside appreciating the newfound normalcy without the guilt of not following my doctor’s protocol. I have an obvious limp, and I am a bit hesitant to push off with my recovering foot. I made a half an attempt to push off with my foot, and my foot flatly refused. Stairs are still a problem as I am going down them sideways using the handrail.
It’s a strange feeling being officially out of the boot really. I feel like I’ve reached the top of a hill, only to find out there is another hill to climb. So my next milestone will be being able to walk without a limp. Again, I have to remind myself to be patient. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. Since a year is 52 weeks, and I am at week 8, and a marathon is 26.2 miles.. then it means that I am at mile 4.
If this is the nyc marathon, I am still in Brooklyn.
