I am recovering from a stress fracture in my left foot. I am allowed to bike and swim, but not run for 6 weeks. Because of the change in my gait, I have to be careful not to walk too much because my knee starts hurting.
But I am barely able to keep myself off my feet today. I swam this morning, but because of timing I only got in 20 minutes. 20 minutes is not a tragic workout, but it's not as much as I would like. I biked an hour yesterday and almost 2 the day before, so a short workout today is in no way tragic. And yet I still am feeling nervous about the short workout.
On a regular basis, I am on here encouraging people with injuries to be patient with themselves and allow time for healing. But I'm very bad and taking my own advice.
Time to listen to my own good words. A little down time is a good idea when recovering from injuries. I will be fine. I will be fine. I will be fine.
