As promised, here’s a short video I made jogging on the track. I took the video after I ran a quick mile and did some stretching. There’s definitely still a bit of a hitch in my stride but I think it’s mostly from me being a bit gun shy. There’s no pain at all during or after jogging; My calf does get a little sore though. You’ll notice I started off kind of fast and strong on the first one just from pure habit. It scared me a little so I walked into the next three. I have to admit, it’s a bit bitter sweet to watch the video of me running. While on the track I felt like I was really moving but the videos clearly show otherwise. I have a bunch of videos of me running track and this is just pitiful compared to how I used to run. I guess I have a lot of work to do and hopefully I can regain most of my speed….
Also, I’ve just been given the old Heave-Ho out of rehab. On my final day, my PT took some ROM measurements and than had me do some single legged heel raises. Once I got to 10 she told me to stop but I think I could have gotten another 5 done pretty easy. The only number I remember from my ROM is I had 24 degrees of dorsi flexion. The rest of the session went well with some plyos and then I said my good-byes. Off to brave the world on my own.
Please excuse the shoddy editing but without further ado:
