In November of 2011 I took a misstep on a “Funny” ankle and my tibia was poking out of the inside of my leg and the fibula was shattered. 13-14 hours later I had a long plate in my shin and 9 screws….putting humpty dumpty back together again.
Now that I have played it safe and took a year to get back to regular running I often mix in a lot more cross training on the bike or rowing machine. I don’t have as much access to the rower so the bike gets some hard workout and I have benefited from the use and my leg feels great.
As the weight continues to fall off I “fantasize” about doing a marathon or more again in the near future.
