Call it all of the above as today marks 6 months since my injury happened.
Jeez, is it really that long since a dark cold February night when I ruptured my AT ?
Yes, it sure is and at 0435hrs today as I started my cycle to work I actually thought that it was that time, it was dark cold and very wet.
Where am I on the recovery trail, about to stop formal PT the hospital are happy with the progress that has taken place while in their care. I am able to jog for 20 minutes, still not running full out yet. Cycle 2/3 times a week 17 miles a time. Walk without a limp and go up and down stairs lifting and dropping on my toes.
The big milestone that everyone seems to push for, single leg calf raise, is almost there, I can manage it with a little support and should be able to do it completely by the end of the month.
No major pains or aches, just the daily stiffness in the morning which is eased off by stretching and massage.
I am so happy that with my recovery that I could dance a jig of delight, but , then again I don’t want to injure the AT again.
Hope that everyone else at achillesblog is recovering well and keep the faith and hard work going !
