|Rehab 3 - 2/2/01
I flew in the night before from my work trip to San Diego. Since I had to wean myself off the crutches and the brace, I decided to just leave them behind, and instead just bringing my rubber band and leg weights.
As expected, it wasn't a big deal--my foot had gained enough strength to handle walking for any decent length.
The airplane trips were a little trying. Seemed like my foot got swollen. Also, I tended to put my leg up on the front seat, unintentionally stretching the heel a bit much. Auwe! For the most part, I did all right though, exercising at least a little bit on the trip.
The day after I got back (and before rehab), I had to work at my daughter's school carnival, then took my daughter around afterwards. The leg didn't hurt that much-it's just the standing around that made my body ache anyway.
Went in to rehab a bit tired, but stoked to start it up again. Didn't seem to lose flexibility or strength--thank goodness! In fact, getting some basic info before the trip gave me the confidence to strengthen my condition even while away. Stoked!
