It’s hard to believe that I’m a month out. With my first surgery, I was still in pain, just recovering from my DVT and on crutches with no weight bearing. By contrast, I spent my 4 week anniversary yesterday walking in real boots at practice, biking and lifting. Granted, the regular boots were an experiment and a failed one (so not ready) but it was good to push a little.
I did 60 minutes of aquajogging on Sunday, so I think I’m ready to step up the cardio a little. My other new focus is transitioning out of my walking boot. I’ve been walking around at home some but am still very unstable. Over the next week, I’ll be working on walking in a sneaker daily and on the stability pad to take the next step (literally) towards running.
