So turns out my Achilles tendon did require surgery to repair. Had that done on the 7th and am now in the 2 week, non-weight bearing portion of this adventure.

Luckily for me I’ve done this before. I’ve been through this recovery period and know that I’ll make it through. And this time I have a husband to help and a gym to get back to.

But I am worried about losing all strength in these next two weeks, so I’ve been reading some tips, am going to pull out my resistance bands, and hope that I don’t completely atrophy before I can walk again.

Golly two weeks feels like a long time at the start.
