I wasn’t kicked out, that’s a little dramatic, but I was told my services weren’t needed anymore (the services that got me free gym access) so, therefore, I now have to pay, therefore, I will figure something else out. So I’ve resorted to videos in my basement and running on pavement because the trails have too much snow still. I’m running! That’s huge. I am running much better, albeit slower, than I was when running outdoors previously.
Just thought I’d let you know how I’m doing. I know you’re concerned and care for me. There you go!
When I broke my leg a year ago (minus one day) the surgeon informed that it will take 6-12 months to get back to where I was before I broke my leg. I thought he was crazy! A year? I’ve since heard a few stories of healing taking multiple years and I’m starting to think getting back to where I was before I broke my leg is going to be an impossibility. Do we ever go back to where we were before a break?
The good news is, I’m running again! I tried running on the treadmill a couple months ago and it resulted in some pretty uncomfortable limping and pain. If I’m not paying attention I can still limp but I ran for 10 minutes staying strong without a limp yesterday so I think I’m getting back on track. The other thing I noticed is when I run my ankle hurts a lot, and I’m thinking this might be a good thing. It’s pushing my ankle beyond what is comfortable, more than the other exercises I do. I’m also wondering if trail running would be better – the uneven ground would make my ankle work harder than a treadmill. I think it needs a little jostling around.
Some things to think about and experiment with. I honestly thought I’d be back to normal within 3 months of breaking my leg and ankle. This has been an eye opener.
Did you know there are an endless amounts of videos on youtube that you can watch at the gym and they just tell you what to do and then you do it. They even tell you you’re doing great! And I’m thinking “How do they even know?!” but it’s been a game changer for me. I used to go in and do a few things that made me sweat and kind of worked my body a bit, but these videos, they’re perfect for late night visits when the gym is empty and I can blast these videos on high and really focus. I’m not interested in attending classes at a certain time with lots of people. So, hey, this is a great alternative for people like me.
or if you want something a little more fun…
Can you picture me actually doing that? I can. It’s not pretty.
