I’m nonetheless not cleared to do strenuous train until the 2-week mark which will likely be subsequent Wednesday.

However even taking it straightforward, it felt nice to be out and I used to be using on native unpaved paths as a result of it’s enjoyable and nearer to nature.

So I known as the cavalry and my spouse got here by and acquired me, with my bike going residence within the trunk.

I’ll get these outcomes at this time after which we’ll proceed, most likely seeing an ortho specialist subsequent. She additionally put me in a boot to reduce additional injury till we all know what’s happening.

If I’m proper, rehab will most likely be just a few weeks, with straightforward spinning on the stationary bike solely, and regularly growing load on the appropriate leg. I’ll additionally use this time to work on my higher physique health. It’s two steps forwards, one step again generally however I’m skilled at it!
