What to do while in a boot?



Recommended Posts

So, I was getting in a good groove - Pilates Sunday, personal trainer Monday, walking or bike Tuesday-Thursday, and some sort of just walking around Saturday. But I fell on Thursday and broke a toe (maybe 2) on my left foot and exacerbated and old stress fracture and likely tore something on my right foot. I'm in a boot on my right and have to wear Tevas on my left to allow for the taping and swelling on the broken toe. So, none of my current exercise routine works for me for about a month. Anyone have any suggestions of what I can do? I don't know that I really need it to be good exercise. I more just want something to keep me doing something so that I am still in the habit when I'm cleared to exercise again.

Thanks!

Ask for PT. They'll set you up for exercises that continue to work on your core while you heal then will work with you to redevelop your food. Sorry about the fall!!

Thanks - I hadn't thought of that. I'll call my doc on Wednesday and see if I can get a referral.
