Today I hit the gym, well slightly tweaked it. Off for my first secession at the Hospital gym, twice a week for the next 6 to 8 weeks. A bit of out of breath static bike, followed by some out of breath trampet, followed by some out of breath cross trainer, out of breath weights and some off balance out of breath wobble board.

I have to say in the year (ish) since I was last in a gym my dislike has not vanished. But what can I do.

Even after one sesson I notice a bit of difference, and I know I have to do this last bit of physio properly, no point slacking now. O but how I want to.

By the way the gym I was in thankfully was the exact opposite of the pic.

100% looser.

That’s how my ankel joint feels after a good week of walking on it. My leg feels so much better and it’s getting stronger everyday, in fact the only real complaint I have it the blocks in my shoes make both heels burn a bit when I walk for a whole day… but that’s little to complain about really isin’t it.

For the first time in a very long time I feel normal, I’m off work at the moment so I’m making the most of getting out and looking round London again, it’s funny the seven months I spent on crutches seems like a long time ago, it’s amazing how quickly you forget just what a pain in the a**s it was at the time.

Hang in there if you’re reading this, it will pass and you will forget about it!

So this week I went back to the physio on Friday (my last vist with her which is a shame, she was a lot of help, but she’s moving back to Dublin so it will be all change) I am now booked into vist the gym in the hospital three time a week (I have to attend at least two a week). I will be working on my balance on a balance board, using the trampet, stationary bike and cross trainer. I still can’t get these damn blocks out of my shoes until I see the doc on February 8th though!

I’ve started back into pyhsio as of today and the last couple of days have been spent walking round London, something that I haven’t done in a loooong time! It was tough going, sore legs, sore feet and in the end, a sore hip from limping a little, but it was nice to get out and about.
