Match fit

May 21st, 2013

Hey there guys,

Its been AGES!! As most of you will be aware life really does take over again once you’re back on your own two feet again.

I’ve been working hard in the gym, body balance (kind of yoga/pilates) and in the pool.  I’ve also started running on the treadmill and have confidently got it up to 4km (I used to run much more, but I will get there eventually).

The physio has now given me a fartlek/interval training regime to get my foot and leg up to 100% match fit before I re-enter sports again.  I’ve been taking my time with this whole recovery process, because I have read with horror the awful injuries people collect when trying to do too much too quickly or when people have v unfortunate accidents!! OUCH!!!!!!!!!

So I believe Im 10 months out of surgery and I’m 100% confident that in two months, I’ll be as close to 100% mobility, strength and flex as I’m ever going to be. Still not a lot of muscle on my left calf, it is v slowly building up again.

I wish you all the safest, most comfortable and easiest of recoveries! I’m not going to say speedy now, because in my experience all the good things come to those who wait!

Take Care,

Miss Emm

    Sounds like good progress. I’m about 5-6 weeks behind you and I’m using A COuch to 10K interval training program to get back into running. I’m about up to 2.75 miles of interval running, but I might have to level it out put in some more crosstraining days in between, to keep my knees from getting sore. Good luck with your program.

    Thanks KKirk. I’ll let you know how the interval training goes. Take care.
