I'm done with the boot!

I'm so happy to announce that I'm done with the boot!  After wearing it for just over 2 weeks, I'm so ready to be done with it.  Today, Sam and I went on a walk, and I'm supposed to walk again tomorrow, then I can speed walk on Thursday with a little run at the end if it feels ok, then I can go to the team run on Saturday and run 3 miles (instead of 18, like the rest of the team).  But I'm very happy to be getting back into things!  Now the only issue is keeping myself injury-free from here on. 

When I was a the foot doctor today, she told me that it would take a while to build back the muscles in my foot that had gotten weak from being in the boot.  She had me do a couple of agility things like squatting on one leg, and it was much easier on my left (non-injured) foot than my right.  I couldn't believe the difference.  She gave me some exercises to do to strengthen those muscles, and I'm supposed to do them for 5 minutes every day. 

I'll update more soon, but I just wanted to share the good news!


  1. That's great news, Caroline! Be sure to take things slowly as you get back into training - there's still plenty of time. See you this weekend!
