14 weeks - 4 mile walk

I haven’t posted in awhile  -Have been very busy, which I guess is a good thing!  I walk around pretty normal now.  Just a little limp left and am careful on stairs and uneven ground.  I only use the leg brace that I got to drive.  It’s the only way I can push in the clutch.  Walking comes much before pushing strength.  My tendon is still quite swollen and my foot swells up by the end of the day.  I still have soreness too, especially in my heel.  The nerve pain is better - glad for that!!   We took the dog for a walk this weekend.  First time that I actually ‘walked’ on purpose for exercise.  We went 4 miles and I did fine until the last 1/2 mile and then my heel started to hurt pretty bad.  Monday,  my tendon was very stiff and sore.  I think I over did it!  It’s so hard, because when it feels good, I just want to get back to my regular activity.  A 4 mile walk was nothing - but now is a huge distance.  Still have a ways to go, but being able to walk freely is huge progress.  No crutches, no boot, no nothing but tennis shoes!!!!!!!  Feels so good :)
