Well, I was after the initial injury but that was when it was just a sprained ankle. I don't think the urgent care doctor thought it was as bad as it is. I will go to my regular doc and get an MRI, see whats going on.

Cheers, Scooterchic

Scoots,

I know this may sound silly, but you should try the perfect pushup things. You know the one with the Navy Seal dude. My wife bought them for me last Christmas and I was doing really well with them until I hurt my shoulder messing with the horses. I need to get started again. I have a hard time doing repetitive regular push-ups because I broke my wrist a few years back, but these don't bother me.

Follow the work out they give you and you'll be doing 30 in under a minute in no time. Their workout is three times a day, if you can do 10 regular pushups then you will do something like 20 three times a day. But the kicker is you do a set of 10 then wait 30 seconds, then do 6 then wait 30 seconds, then do 4. Then later you change hand positions. It really did work. After 3 months I was doing 60 a set.

Default here is a thought

I know after my back surgery I couldnt power walk like I use to.....so my p/t told me about using a pool. I started at the ymca using those goofy water noodles and I couldnt believe it worked. I was still sore but not cripped over sore.
And I build up stamina & toned my legs.....

I couldnt believe after surgery the p/t place actually had a treadmill in a pool
now that was the sh*t.......it helped me to be able to walk upright again

It might give your injury the time it needs to heal & u can keep up your training

good luck

No it more like a dog that will be hungry 30 minutes after eating.
