Haven't posted for a while because nothing has happened here really. Except that I've been reading an awful lot about weight training ... how heavy, how many, how frequent, etc. More about that in a future post in the not too distant future.
In the meantime my gout medication was changed earlier this week and I was also prescribed a different rehab regime. It seems I have been doing not enough passive stretching and far too many eccentric achilles stretches. 225 per day instead of the recommended 90 and that has probably been having a negative affect on my knee causing a patella tracking problem in the left leg.
So now I also have straight leg quadriceps stretches to do three times per day. But I can also run ... every other day. Starting at the beginning again with alternating 5 minutes running with the same amount of walking for a total of ten minutes.
As far as I'm concerned though there's no rush to get back to full fitness so long as it is FULL fitness.
