Progress seems to be going really well.
I'm doing as I was told, 2 or 3 sessions a day with the resistance bands, working on the mobility of the ankle joint and the strength of the significant muscles in my lower leg. Sitting to watch the Vuelta a Espana, I'm sure my repetitions fall in pace with the riders. (What an awesome ride by Chris Froome on Wednesday!)
I've also been chipping away with some core stability exercises. Having no upper body strength at all, I find these REALLY hard and feel sick after only 5 - 10 mins. I don't look like the photo from the previous post yet!!
I am a little limited in what I can do, bearing in mind I'm wearing the bionic boot and don't have any equipment. I have rotated round these drills: press ups, sit ups, plank, tricep dips, V sits, reverse plank, crunches, alternate arm/leg superman.
If anyone has any ideas for some alternative drills that I could try, please make suggestions.
I've now spent 2 weeks walking in the bionic boot using the crutches, so after this weekend I'm due to spend the next 2 weeks without the crutches. This is my next significant milestone!
