My "big" plans just got modified....
Friday, February 21, 2014
I was excited about temporarily living within a mile of a gym (instead of 40 miles round trip!). And riding many miles of paved bike paths under palm trees instead of 4' of snow. And walking miles by the ocean. I had a streak of exercising & eating well for 41 days out of 44.
A "scoped" knee that's not healing well and a broken toe (which has healed by itself because I didn't realize it was broken) didn't slow down my plans. But a torn tendon in my foot has.
I'm a very lucky girl! I don't need surgery or to wear a boot or a cast which would really mess up our plans! Just supportive shoes & a foot compression sock and "take it easy."
Dr. says "If you don't let it rest, it won't heal."
So... I won't be pedaling at the highest resistance possible on the bike or rowing harder every day. Or walking more miles with my SAT or doing leg presses for a few weeks. But I can do some activities if they don't cause pain. So all is not lost. Delayed, but not lost.
I'm grateful not to be on crutches going up to the 2nd floor condo! I'm a very lucky girl!
