Woo-hoo!! I'm working out(!!!) and I feel my ankle getting stronger daily! I actually ran a few steps this weekend (unconsciously) getting out of the crosswalk for a speeding car to pass. After I realized what I did, first I thought to myself "oops", but then I realized that those few running steps didn't hurt! Ya! (Granted this was like 5 running steps, not 5 miles, but still made me smile!:)
Below is my cross training frenzy week:
Pool x1 hour
Body Pump x1 hr
MD check up, and I was cleared to start cross training!! So....x1 hr on elliptical!
pool x1 hour and 15 mins
Body Pump ( snuck in before CAR happy hour)
Pool running x 1 hr
Elliptical x 1 hr
Body Pump x1 hour
Elliptical x1 hour
walking (as cardio) 15 minutes.
My ankle is feeling stronger and is tolerating the elliptical very well. I plan to incorporate biking this week, and continue to increase my walking (cardio) time. I may even attempt yoga:)
