So I went into the weekend thinking I would be able to get out and do something. My hips had other ideas. Saturday, just running errands took enough out of me that I just sat at home that night. Sunday, I got up hoping to go for a bike ride…nope! Flat tire. Better here than out on the road. So I decided to take another chance at walking. It went well on Wednesday night. I got in 1.5 miles in that night on the treadmill. So today I set out sans ipod and put in a nice – LONG – two miles. I walked on the same road that I’ve ran on a million times. It just felt weird. Like something was missing. I tried to jog but quit after six or seven steps. Argh!
So I’m waiting for the xray results. I had them taken on Friday at lunch. It should take about 24-48 hours so possibly Tuesday. I just want to make sure nothing is broken before I start pushing things. PT has gotten me back to walking normally. But I still have pain and I can’t jump on my right leg without wincing. So it’s back to the waiting game. At least I can ride my bike and walk. More than I could do a month ago.
Thanks to everyone for the words of encouragement. It keeps me from digging into Ben & Jerry’s! Thanks!
