Foot V 2.0
Well I took my first full body unassisted steps today. The foot is still really sore, although maybe not as bad as yesterday. Each step hurts and sends pain right up my calf but I am dealing with it and hoping it improves quickly. The rest of the time I am still walking with my crutches so that I am only putting partial weight on it but mimicing the movement of walking. still hurts even with the crutches but it isn't as bad then. I think it is important to do this because i try to walk correctly but with the pain i am sure i am trying to avoid the sore spots. The calf/lower leg is def atrophied a bit. Im sure that immobilization and weakening isn't helping the walking process but I think most of the pain is from the surgery. The incision sites are sore and obviously any weight bearing on the fascia causes pain. It is sorta scary. Makes me wonder. did the surgery work? When I walk it honestly feel like a piece of my foot is cut out and i am stepping on a knife. I really hope this is just part of the process and walking will get less painful. even weight bearing started to be an issue. When making my dinner and just standing at the stove for a few minutes a calf started tremble a bit.

This was an effective wod. The short duration of exercise before switching and the 1 minute really helps to keep the intensity up. I loved it. Couldn't make it to CF today. I hope to get back there tomorrow or sometime soon.
