2 shoes! (very slowly)

March 22, 2013

So I went to the physio yesterday with my other trainer hoping she would put in in 2 shoes. And she did! It was so strange walking with 2 shoes on and really scary. She also got me to do heel rises both feet together but my bad foot wasn’t doing any of the work, it felt SOOO weak. Poor foot. But at least the achilles is fine, actually the other achilles was suffering a bit yesterday with all the work but busted one is ok  (FOR NOW!)

I think I will still wear the boot when I go outside but in my flat I seem to be fine walking kinda normally in 2 shoes although very slowly, very strong dendency to stick my foot out to the side so its a really effort walking normally.  I remember this is how I walked about after the achilles ruptured and before I went to hospital.

I need to get some heel wedges today apparently they sell the in boots. I might also get so NIKE airmax or something if I can find some.

    Rebecca, congratulations, great progress !!

    Sounds like you are getting good treatment from NHS and are being sensible about doing 2 shoes indoors only, but do be careful you are still at an early stage in the remodelling of the tendon. Strength and co-ordination (proprioception) will rebuild but its a steady journey.

    As you mention Nike Airmax, just to let you know I have been using Nike Air Pegasus running shoes and found them very good for normal day to day activities and for workouts.
