I tried to walk today

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Ok so I motivated myself to get on the treadmill and walk 2 miles....
I did 1.25 miles. My bad ankle is not doing well.

I have had issues all summer with it cramping up - where there are NO muscles for it to do that. It is crampy where I had my reconstruction done. I am in constant discomfort. I go about my day as usual though. I am NOT sitting around - I have been doing my strength training 2x a week... and have been staying active - just not doing my reg routine - swimming one hour a day (since return from Cali in July).

I made an appointment with my ortho dr for next week.. ugh!

I am carrying on - thanks for stopping by.

    Aww, I hope the doc can help out with the pain and discomfort. It might be a good idea to let your ankle rest. I had a bad ankle a while ago and kept running/walking on it, and it was very unhappy about that!

    Hopefully, the doc will have some construction recommendations to reduce your discomfort. I can't imagine dealing with that and trying to get so much walking in. You are soooo a good role model.
