Yay, I’ve been on a bike! I can’t say that I have been biking, more rolling around the parking lot and pedalling away on a trainer at the gym, but still – the joy!! I thought that it would be impossible to pedal with a cast. Obviously it isn’t. I wish I had known earlier, it feels soooo goood!!
I’m still working on getting my legs in shape. But I find it super hard to tell if I am pushing myself too hard or not enough. I’ve finally met with a physio therapist and gotten a rehab program that makes me at least somewhat tired.
But I’m still not seeing as much progress as I would like. Tomorrow is Cast Away-Day (I hope…again…). I am of course super excited, and nervous, since I suck at standing on my right leg. No balance – a lot of pain. That bright red boot on my good leg has, in addition to its fantastic smell, offered a very comforting support. Loosing it will be a relief to my nose and skin but quite a shock to my muscle-free foot and ancle. Heck, I don’t even know if I’ll be able to stand up afterwards. But it will probably be ok, right? I mean, I managed to stand on one leg for at least 5 nano seconds without dying from pain yesterday. I did wake up last night from throbbing pain in my leg, but I figure that I’ll be able to stand for at least 10 real seconds by tomorrow. Totally enough to walk… Right? Ehe… I’ve decided to celebrate in either case.
