Rome Wasn't Built in a Day

7 weeks post-op!  It's hard to believe that I've been out of the cast for a full week already.
  • the incision is still healing a couple of spots but looks really, really good
  • my skin is still uber-sensitive
  • it feels really, really good to scratch!
I'm making some good progress on my rehab:  my dorsiflexion is equal or maybe just a bit better than the right one and my plantarflexion is only lacking about 10 degrees.  Now that I'm able to move the damn thing and my motion is improving I'm going to be able to make some significant strides with my strength.

I just need to remember that flexibility improves day-to-day, and I must work on it daily, and strength improves week-to-week so I need to be a bit more patient to appreciates gains.  I am back to wearing my Free Run 2s so that will help with some foot strength.

Must say I'm pretty pleased with how it feels and where I'm at 7 weeks from surgery.  I just need to keep plugging away.
