Yesterday afternoon was my PT appointment and I went in with a lot of hope. I learned that my injury will take a while to heal and I probably will not be able to walk the half marathon in March. I am extremely upset about that but in the end my health is what matters.
The PT therapist checked out my ankle she had me do a lot of different exercises, measured my feet etc. She did tell me that I can do all kinds of exercising in the pool (yeah) but I really should not do Zumba, continuous walking etc. She also suggested Yoga and more Pilates which I like so that will work for me and that I need to look into getting some newer walking shoes. I was really taken aback by most of what she said but it did make a lot of sense. Many people tell me "you don't listen" I really do they just think I don't. I am very stubborn and when I want something I go after it but I have to let my body heal before I do more damage.
This is a huge disappointment for me but I know in the end I will be much better off. My PT is for 6 weeks so keep your fingers crossed everyone and hope for a miracle - I am!
