The Next Step (Not Literally)

Besides actually having my ankle heal correctly, one of the things that I have been worrying about is how to stay physically active during this down time. Obviously, all forms of cardio are out of the question (for the time being), but what about other forms of exercise? Is there anything else that I can do during this time that will not only keep me active, but also aid in my recovery and healing?

With this in mind, a package arrived at my house yesterday afternoon from Amazon. Opening it, I saw that it was my friend Esther. In the box was a set of WENFENG Resistance Bands! Knowing how much I love to hike, and how much sitting around was killing me, this gift is beyond being perfect!

I had honestly never thought aboutĀ different ways to stay active. My mindset has been on hiking, cardio and how to get back to that as quickly as I can. So what have I been doing since last night? That’s right, I have been scouring the web and you tube trying to find appropriate exercises and workouts that I can do while my ankle heals.

So many thanks to Esther for the thoughtful gift that will undoubtedly assist me on the road to recovery and being able to hike again!

More to come…
