I still have a way to go, and my ankle still swells up every day, and aches when I do too much. I still don’t have the balance I used to have so need to be very careful as I walk, and I have to walk slower than I used to. But I am making progress. I have been told by both my doctor and my physio that this type of injury takes around eighteen months to fully recover from, so I am trying to be patient.
I am very lucky to live in Melbourne where there are some great walking trails. Today Paul and I decided to walk along the Scotchman’s Creek Trail. My longest walk since my injury which I did last weekend was 7.5kms, and as today’s walk was fairly flat, I wanted to walk at least 8kms. I ended up walking nearly nine and a half kilometres.
The Scotchman’s Creek Trail is one I haven’t done in several years and is a lovely walk along the creek, at one stage going under the Monash Freeway through a long tunnel.
