Oh how wonderful it is!!

Went to my PT appointment yesterday and was told to ditch the boot, so I celebrated and bought myself a brand new pair of running shoes on the way home.  Boy did it feel weird to have a shoe on that foot.  It didn’t hurt, just felt really weird.  I wore the shoes all evening and this morning.  I am having no problems with rubbing on the incision so far and other than the tendon being really tight, all feels good.  (I bought an expensive pair of double layered, frictionless socks from The Running Room shoe store that are supposed to prevent blisters).  Did I mention that I drove to my appointment, the shoe store, and then to the grocery store?? YIPPEEEEEEE!!!  Two big strides in one day.  I finally feel like I am getting my life back.

  1. Congrats on the two milestones! That’s so exciting. What a good way to celebrate - with a new pair of shoes. I think i will do the same at that point.
    What kind of exercises are you doing for PT now? Are they suggesting doing lots of walking?
    Nice that you can drive again. It must be nice to not have to depend on other people to get around now.
    I called ACU about my cast, and they are supposed to call me back. Hopefully they can fix it for me.
    Take care.

  2. After I read your post, I immediately went to the Running Room online store to look for the socks you bought. I have yet to find a pair of socks that don’t irritate my incision. Could you tell me the exact name of the type of sock you bought? There are so many double layer socks to choose from online at the store site, but none that say “frictionless”..I would really appreciate it. I am desperate !!!!
    Thanks in advance and congrats on all your wonderful progress!!!!!

  3. Hi Marianne, They are called “Wright Sock” Running Lite and come in small, medium, and large. I believe they are listed as “crew” socks. They come up about five inches and end about 2.5 inches above my incision so no rubbing
