Six Months!

Today marks the six month anniversary of my initial injury. It seems to have gone by so fast, yet so slow. 

Today is also the three month anniversary of the second injury. That seems to have gone by pretty quick.

The achilles should now be about as strong as it's going to get, but there's still 3 months to go on the muscle tear. It feels pretty obvious that the muscle still has a way to go - when I extend the leg I can feel the lump that is the scar tissue. It's getting less and less obvious as the weeks go by, so it won't be too long now.

When I am paying attention to what I'm doing I feel like I have barely any limp left. When I'm tired, distracted, or trying to walk quicker it comes back. 

I did a fair bit of walking last night for the Lions game, so the leg was very exhausted today and I was limping noticeably. It was a good reminder for me, though, that I do still need to take it easy for another few months yet.
