Well, I’m at the half marathon milestone and can’t believe it was six months ago the rupture happened. I have been going to PT twice weekly but will be scaling back to once a week into the new year. Am able to do limited single calf raises on the rupture side, and if I push it, my calf seizes right up. During last week there were two days in a row where I couldn’t even get the lift going but the PT said it was not unusual. Am still wearing Sketchers to work, but have started trying regular dress shoes (no heel) without much trouble. Doing more treadmill time but still can’t get under a 19 minute kilometre…when I tried to push faster I would get knee and hip pain so I’ve been told to either cut the time or intensity back (which is hard to imagine given how slow I feel!). PT wants me to try to return to the tennis court to see what I need to strengthen but we’ll see how much Christmas shopping is left first!
