Try Tai Chi, djones. Thank me later.
If aynone cares, the surgery went relatively well. I have some lingering muscle issues with my big right toe. For a couple months post surgery the muscles wouldn't work, and I couldn't "lift" the toe. Today I'd say I have about 60% of the original strength. I also have some faint pains in my right ankle. Makes it nearly impossible to run on any surface like asphalt or concrete. The good news is that otherwise I can run like normal again. I no longer experience the intense pains in my legs and 2 months after I was given the clearance to run I did an official test clocking me at 12:22 for a mile and a half. My goal is to be around 11:00 flat next time I test in January.
