I know I have said this before, but I finally think my ankle is healing. It has not hurt at all in over a week. And it has felt pleasantly itchy. Healing? I think so. I still am not running and am not sure when I will be back out there. But hopefully soon. Slowly and carefully. Very slowly and very carefully. I am optimistic that these are promising signs.
Sunday - PT stretches, foam rolling, clamshell planks, and 20 minutes of yoga.
Monday - 30 minutes on the bike, clamshell planks, foam rolling.
Tuesday - upper body strength training with the resistance band, pushups, squats, clamshell planks, foam rolling, PT stretches.
Wednesday - Rest, unless stretching and foam rolling count as exercise.
Thursday - 35 minutes on the elliptical. Ankle did not hurt at all during or afterwards. PT stretches, clamshell planks, and foam rolling.
Friday - Upper body lifting, clamshell planks, pushups, regular planks, and balance exercises at lunch. PT stretches, core work, and squats in the evening.
Saturday - 45 minutes on the bike. PT stretches and these lunge-like things. And some time with the good old foam roller.
