So, my restart the other day didn't go as well as planned. I never made it to the gym. Instead I decided to try an easy Supernatural. Bad idea. I made it so there were no squats or lunges (not that I do them anyway) and the portals stayed to the front, no twisting and turning. As I was standing there playing, I could feel my left and it didn't feel good. I kept moving it and shaking it when I could, but standing in one place for an entire song just did not agree with it. I'm sad. I spent the rest of the day sort of hobbling a little bit, not much. I did walk through a huge mall after my doctors appointment but the entire time I could feel my calf. Then I decided to do my PT exercises before bed that same night. They actually felt pretty good, but I didn't push any of the stretches. The next morning, yesterday, I woke up and could feel my knee/calf a bit. It wasn't enough to stop me from walking but I noticed while walking Mavy that I did limp a bit. Then I went to my classroom and was literally on my feet for 3 hours. They hurt so bad. My feet hurt. My legs hurt. My back hurt. Ugh!!! I was in agony. But I hit my step goal. I also realized that in just under 4 weeks I will be back in school and I need to be able to stand on my feet all day. This is something I need to work on. But I can't just stand, I need to move. And it's too hot out to walk outside. So I think I'm going to go to school a few days next week and work on my stamina. Then I'm going to go to school every day the following week, and really work on my stamina. I'm also going to try and stay active around the house here. But for everything else, I'm done. I'm not going to the gym or doing PT or anything until I can walk for extended periods of time pain free. I know that seems kind of drastic, but I walking is a basic human function and right now I can't do it very well.
That's all I have today. I'm going to work on school stuff for a bit.
