I decided to post my review of week 13 tonight since I likely won’t have to to post tomorrow night. Week 13 was the first step on my road to recovery from the sprained ankle I suffered about week and a half ago.
At my my physio appointment on Monday I was told I could start biking again, an important step not only in an effort to maintain my cardio in order to stay in shape for the Toronto Waterfront Marathon but also in order to maintain my sanity as I was starting to get restless after a week of inactivity following the injury.
I started off by going for an easy 15-20 minute bike ride Monday night. I followed that up with a 40 minute effort yesterday which ended up being a 14-15 km ride. Tonight since I am on the road for business I did 40 minutes on a stationary bike at the hotel gym.
Tomorrow my day will be pretty busy but I do plan to head back to the hotel gym for more stationary bike workouts Saturday and Sunday before I head home Sunday evening. If anything these workouts this week have helped get me back in a positive state of mind.
While being able to bike is a positive step I am hopefully that my ankle will continue to progress and that I will be able to resume light running soon.
How did your week go?
