Well, maybe not terribly long, but it felt like an eon to me, waiting for my darned leg muscles to knit themselves back together.
I’m not 100% better, but I am comfortably mobile now, and I went to the Y today! Did two miles on an elliptical and swam a half dozen laps. Yes-sah. It feels so great to move again!
The good news is that I didn’t gain any weight during my week of forced inactivity, in spite of an overindulgence at a wonderful wedding reception and a week spent in a conference.
For that, I’m grateful.
