I saw my doctor today. He said I still need to wear the boot for 2 more weeks, but I can start weightbearing xtraining (like the elliptical) as long as it doesn't hurt. If xrays look good in 2 weeks I can start running, he says. Cool.
This afternoon I went to the gym after work:
5m + 5km rowing (26:41)
15 min ergometer, 85 rpm
25 min recumbent bike, 130 bpm goal
14 min elliptical, low resistance/high turnover
lower-body weights: abductor/adductor, quad, hamstring
I was so psyched to get on the elliptical again after 2 weeks of no weightbearing, but by the time I got there I was fighting a cramp in my foot. This was unrelated to the stress fracture, just one of those things. I lost a minute trying to get rid of the cramp.
