Not really supposed to walk until next week. But the dog and I couldn't take it any more.  I did a very slow .5 miles in the boot.

Blistering pace of 2.75 mph on my one mile walk. Things are improving. Switched from the hiking boots to my Hoka Stinson Evos and that seems to have reduced some of the pain.

Started working on getting ankle flexibility back with drawing the alphabet with both feet in a hot tub of water.

4 miles walking at 15mm pace.  I'm in lousy shape and the foot is stiff and sore.

4.4 walking in the snow.  Didn't push too fast.  Foot was better until 3 miles in and then started hurting. Legs are doing better. Progress.

Time on the dreadmill.  Improvements.  Starting to test out the Nike FuelBand.  Gotta love geek toys.

Slippery out - but was able to maintain my pace walking in the dryer areas.
