First time driving and aerobic gym

Posted , 5 users are following.

OK yesterday I was out of my bootie for the first day (6 weeks) so decided to get in my car and see if I could remember to drive. Bit of a mistake. In my bootie I had been lifting my big toe and protecting it, i the car (its a righty) it really hurt on the brake. So I went around the block and managed not to kill anyone but felt dejected. Today I got back in the car and drove to the gym. 10 minutes on the bike 10minutes rowing and 10 minutes on the elypitical runner. Aouch my legs turned to jelly later but I fet soooooo good!  So all in all a good day - 6 weeks 3 days in. Have hope all pre bunionectomy folks!

    So glad u feeling better slow but sure us the key. I am 3 weeks in and just starting to walk mire in the shoe. It us exhausting though. I have agreed ti stay off work at least another 2 weeks till I get the wire out of my 2nd toe. Surprised me a lot actually how long it has taken for me to feel better this time around.
