After yesterday's trial run on the exercise bike I decided to go for a whole 30 mins today. Nowhere near as much fun as running but necessary to maintain fitness for another 5 or 6 weeks ... not a very comforting thought.
The colostrum from Neovite.com arrived this morning. Mixed 1g with 300ml milk to test for tolerance as suggested - hope this stuff works. Applying Deep Heat 3 times a day and still progressing religiously with achilles strengthening exercises.
Feel good at the moment as the ankle seems to be less painful than of late.
