10 Things About A Foot Injury

With a check up this morning to see how my foot is healing, I thought I'd share with you ten highlights and lowlights from two weeks of wearing the Equalizer Low Top Air Walker.
  1. I have to ride the bus/subway much more often than I'd like, but I'm still not guaranteed a seat.
  2. Rainy days are not your friend.
  3. Walking uphill can be exhausting.
  4. You build strong leg muscles lugging the thing around everywhere you go.
  5. Definitely have new found sympathy for anyone else you see on the street wearing one.
  6. Once you get used to walking in it, you'll start walking pretty fast again and still be able to pass people!
  7. In a pinch, it can be used for self defense.
  8. As with any injury or illness that sidelines someone from running for a time, it will be even more enjoyable once I can do it again because I can appreciate it a little more!
  9. Can be an easy conversation starter.
  10. Gives me plenty of time to decide on all the fitness classes/activities I want to do when I get the all clear!
Have a great day!!

It would take some strong legs to kick with a boot on..Wowee!!

Hang in there buddy!! I was on crutches with a knee brace for nearly 2 months in college after knee surgery. I could not believe how many people could care less about those who are injured. The elevator would be full and no one would get off.. I am guessing the Subway is the same. UGH!!
