I can’t believe half of 2019 has passed by already. It has been a learning year for me so far with lots of good progress. At the beginning of the year, I added a (2019 goals) page to the site which included a June goals page. In that page I said I would visit the year goals in June and assess my progress. This is that assessment.
This Monday, I completed the last workout of Couch to 5k. I’ve been running at such a slow pace that the actual run was 2.4 miles long. Regardless, I can check off “Complete Couch to 5k” off the June goals list! This is the first milestone in what I hope will be a good running year.
It’s been a year since I had surgery to repair a fractured ankle. I’m still alive and I still want to maintain this blog. I know that I made no effort to maintain this blog while I was recovering. My feeble excuse is that I did not feel like it. I do want to write more though. I find it therapeutic to write about accomplishments and failures.
Since I fractured my ankle 8 weeks ago, I have gone through 2 splints, and 4 fiber glass casts. My orthopedist would cut open the cast every two weeks to take an xray before re-casting. Yesterday, the last cast was removed for good and I was put into a walking booth with partial weight bearing allowed.
Disclaimer: I am not a medical professional. This post just documents my experience in returning to a desk job wearing a cast after ankle surgery. When in doubt, always ask your attending physician.
