Physical status

I am walking now, and using the leg successfully to walk without a perceptible limp. The new-grown calf muscle is still pretty weak but is strengthening thanks to the bicycling and using the muscle during walking. The stretching exercises have stretched it to almost the same length as the other calf muscle, though there is still some work to be done. It is very sore though, sort of like if you did a really, really rough workout and the next day are so sore that you can barely move. That will resolve itself as long as I don't overdo it. It just gets really, really tired and sore if I try to walk too far on it, which peeves me because it means I can't go to the Chinese New Years celebrations in San Francisco :-(.

  1. You mean you can't scoot yourself around on your belly (w)recklessly? ;-)

    Feel better, my editor to the stars.


  2. I'm glad it's getting a bit better.
