Ankle - some progress

Well just entering third week after breaking ankle arms and right leg gaining strength but left leg already losing muscle. I am now able to weight bear slightly but unable to use crutches am using a zimmer frame does nothing for my street cred but at least I can get out of the wheelchair. The foot swells about five minutes after getting up but one day at a time.

I am really sad I am not in position to start the new podcasts as they look amazing and just what I was hoping for to get me to at least 5k.

Enjoy and as always take ca

That must be so frustrating. Will you be allowed to do something like Aquajog before you can start walking/running again ? It would help keep your muscles in shape. Or possibly some gentle stretches with a resistance band ?

I hope you heal quickly.


Looking into aqua jogging so this may be worth a try thanks for the info.
