Today, I can walk without limping. I’m still sore and I have no intention of running today (except possibly behind Shoo as he attempts to learn to ride a bike), but I can walk with a normal stride with only minor soreness. Yesterday, I was stiff and limping and every step hurt.
Step 1: Try not to re-injure myself while playing with Shoo today
Step 2: Hit up the gym tomorrow in my Zemgear shoes and give the bikes and elliptical a try. If nothing hurts, maybe do a lap around the indoor track, just to see how it goes.
Step 3: Hit up the gym again on Wednesday for a little bike, a little elliptical, some lower body weights and *fingers crossed* a short run.
Step 4: Hit the pool with Shoo on Thursday. While this won’t be a true workout (have you ever tried to swim with a 5 year old? yeah), hopefully I can work my legs a bit.
Step 5: Go for a real run on Friday.
Step 6: If at any point my calf screams at me, I will stop, cry, throw things, and find a beer.
