I am so close to waving goodbye to my moonboot and it really could not come any sooner!
This past few weeks we have seen temperatures of around 39 degrees over consecutive days! I have walked around in heat wearing the boot.. and I have to say it is not great!
It is like my leg has its own personal sauna. Like I might slip over inside my boot and slide right down the footpath! In other first world problems – my tan (albeit fake) – is impossible to maintain inside a sweaty black plastic/foam lined boot!
I’ve never been one to like to look at myself walk, be it in a video or even a reflection! I tried to get some ordinary footage of me walking and I feel a little ridiculous unless I make a joke of it..
You see I’ve bought myself a walking stick and I’m not afraid to use it!!
I actually need to use the stick (on advice from my top physio Craig) because it helps me to perfect my gait. Without it I am a little cautious and take short sharp strides which aren’t the best. So until I’ve mastered it.. I’m stuck with the stick.
My leg feels stronger now than ever before, I have no concerns with walking on it.. it just takes a bit longer to get places than I like! I usually end up slippingthe boot on because I want to go fast..
Seems I am still getting lessons in patience!
