Well I’ve been feeling so good lately and going for little walks every day since the first couple of bootless days, gradually building up. And then on August 1st I started my walking challenge ( 50 miles/ just over 80k for August). I worked out I needed just under 2 miles a day so have been incorporating leisurely walks, with popping into town for a couple of groceries, to blackberry picking and was pleasantly surprised at how well I’ve done. ( 36k so far!!!)
I’ve been wearing my ankle boots and then my walking boots for support and doing fine and the trouble is I have felt so good I actually forgot that I’d hurt my ankle this morning. And whilst drying myself after my shower I stood on my good leg, lifted my right foot onto my knee and twisted my foot towards me to dry it. Ow!ow! Bliddy ow!!!
I know I haven’t done too much except stretch it further than I have done for a while but it meant I have limped whilst walking to town for some fruit and veg - car still in garage getting it’s window sorted. I wound it down and it fell into the door and I had to get 2 lovely garage lads to get it back up and wedge it with a bit of wood until they could order a part for me.
Also battling with the damned wrist brace , on my left wrist luckily and I’m right handed but I didn’t realise how much you use your non dominant hand for steadying things, holding the saucepan while you drain it, holding a bottle tight while you unscrew it.....
I am back to feeling like a right crock again. And October seems so far away ... I WANT TO RUN AGAIN!!😢😢
You all seem to be doing so well I am green with jealousy.
