My ST schedule is Monday and Thursday for lower body and Tues and Friday for upper body.
The lower body consists of a lot of different leg lifts (either seated or lying), donkey kicks and I have been doing squats but making sure to put weight on my heels. I've been strapping on a 2lb ankle weight on the good leg to compensate for the boot.
Upper body is all seated except for push ups. I just started the hundred push ups challenge on Tuesday and will be doing it Tues, Fri and Sun.
I've been biking when I can. I got in some yesterday and today...trying to keep some cardio fitness going.
I went ahead and ordered the shorter model of the boot. The large was was making it hard to drive because it would get stuck under the seat making it uncomfortable. I'm lucky it wasn't on my driving leg and that I don't drive a stick. I checked with the podiatrist who's covering for mine and he said it would be fine.
Week one on the boot is nearly done. Hopefully only 3 more to go. My foot has been feeling pretty good. I really haven't noticed much soreness at all. I did get the results from the x-ray last Friday. They were unable to see anything so they figure it's pretty small. I guess when my doc comes back from vacation, I'll probably got in to see him. I'm not exactly sure what's going to be happening. I suspect he'll be surprised since when he left, he thought I had tendonitis.
I think the migraine that I've had for the past few days is finally gone (fingers crossed). It was bad enough this morning that I stayed home from work, but it's good now.
Looking forward to Friday and the weekend.
