15 weeks and ready to run

November 19, 2013 · 1 Comment

Hi everyone -

Recovery is mainly going well.

Lots of flexibility, scar well healed and staying active at crossfit. Do all lifts that don’t involve jumping (back squats, overhead squats, dead lifts) but with slightly lower weights. I did 90 real he man push ups the other day - the most ever for me - my training has benefited in at least one way from this rupture!

I still gimp most of the time but especially if wearing boots. I am ready to run again! Still working on patience.

I overdid it on my bike trainer two weeks ago - too much standing on the pedals so I have backed down.

On the whole, surgical approach has worked very well for me. Be well.

    Ya, ATRs do heal pretty well, Thank God!! Keep healing and strengthening — and backing down when you overdo!
