Concept 2 rower
2000m - 8:06 / 34 spm
20min - Stairmaster hill program, level 11 of 20It was a really good sweat. The rowing was exhausting but no PR.
My appointment Friday with Dr. Willers went as expected. He had a pretty young intern who seemed to keep him smiling, especially noting my continuous questions about "when"... "how long" .. "what about stairs?" I said I was getting frustrated and was gaining weight, he smiled as said, "yeah, you're huge." His intern laughed.
He said "you're not ready to run a 400m ... there has been some healing, and we knew it was going to take a long time when we decided not to go the surgical route. You'll continue to heal if you behave yourself. No running, only exercises that keep your foot in contact with a surface. See me again in 4 weeks."
I don't think I've behaved myself completely. Doing a lot of things on my feet. I feel that this breaks a little everyday and heals a little every night. Eventually, it will heal.
Dr. Matt, a Sewanee friend (who looked at the xrays today) says it looks like good bone is being layed in and will certainly be healed in 8 weeks, and that is a little overkill. He said that if I wait 8 weeks, I should be done with it once and for all. He said I don't want to create a chronic injury that will involve surgery to remove necrotic bone.
