Thanks to you all, I have done my workouts on the floor, lots of sit ups leg lifts and I used weights for arms biceps curls, triceps, pics,my back, shoulders. This chair is great to. I will have to have patience and let it heal. Nice to know I can still work out.
Hi Newsweetbreezes, Depending on how long you have been walking, if this is the first time you've walked this long, you need to slow down. Take small steps instead of long strides. There's nothing you can really do at this point, but take it easy for a few days. I injured the back of my ankle in January and I was out of commission for 3 weeks. I couldn't do any running or even fast walking. But you can do other exercises that don't require you to be on your feet. Try doing upper body workouts, do sit ups, leg lifts, thigh workouts by lying on your back.
Do chair excersises tonight. Swing your legs cross each other. Do the head workout where you look back as far as you can being careful not to strain. Then put your head forward and backward. Do deep breathing excercises.

Today I am suffering from my 2 and a half mile walk on friday evening and I felt great doing it but the last 2 days my shins and ankles and under my right foot is very sore and swollen. I want to exercise tonight but they are just to sore. I am worried I don't want to break my exercise routine. Tonight I am missing Zumba. I do not need to gain any weight due to not exercising. Do anyone have any suggestions how to heal up fast? How do I prevent injuries? I did to much to fast I think but I was feeling so good doing it. How do I know when to stop so I do not hurt myself? LOTS OF QUESTIONS?
