Hi all - haven’t posted in several months. Tore my Achilles in June, surgery 7 weeks later (misdiagnosis!), wrapped up rehab visits in November. Life is pretty much back to normal. I’m able to run 3-4 miles with no problem. Both legs are still noticeably weaker, but that’ll come with time. I was able to ski a couple days over the Christmas break - the lack of leg strength was a problem. Problem #1 right now is the 20 (!!!!) lbs. I gained after the injury.

I have 4 triathlons scheduled for 2010 and plan to return to the lacrosse field and basketball court this spring.

Hang in there all and work hard at your rehab. IMHO, that’s the key - hard work at your rehabbing. Life will soon enough be normal again. You’ll get through this just fine. HNY all!

    Running 3-4 miles! Good for you!
    I wonder when (and if) we will get the full strength back…. Calf raises are a pain, but seem to give the real work out.
