Actually I altered a boot (ankle stabilizer) for a bike cleat. If there is a will there is a way to get on that bike.
Look at circulations to flush that area. Any exercise to strengthen the leg and keep flexible. Most Dr's don't consider rehab for the toe, check knee replacement, ankle, and foot joint replacement therapy. You can do some exercises that will keep what you have. After any activity elevate that foot, use ice and ask about doing ankle pumps or some other activity to promote circulation to that area. Search and be creative.
Get steel toe shoes for work, you can find cool ones.
You look great in spandex, take care and get back on the road.
Yes, definitely! I can't imagine putting my foot in a shoe right now. I'm still elevating & I'm learning what is too much. Last two days - way too much! Feeling it today.
The girl is very autistic - not sure she realizes exactly what happened. Guardians moved her out of state within days of it happening, so I'm not sure where she is or what's up with her. Not exactly her fault - it wasn't like she was trying to hurt me. Just one of the risks you run working with this population.
I am an avid roadie, dabbling in off-road riding. About 4 weeks ago, an upset student in our summer program flipped a desk. I didn't get out of the way in time - it crashed on my right foot, breaking my big toe.
Since then, I'm healing well. I'm allowed to strength train upper body/torso with supervision and to swim. I've been strength training and I start swimming next week. At the six-week mark, the doc says I should be able to put on a shoe and walk with a mild limp and just a little pain.
I just can't wait to get back on the bike. I'm trying to take it easy, do what I'm told and not push too fast. I want it to heal well. All you who can ride physically - do it! You never know when you suddenly may not be able to. Enjoy the ride, whatever it is!!
