I just broke my ankle and tore a ligament (not completely in half, but I'm a little afraid about the inner stability of my ankle). I got a plate and screws surgically...installed? but I'm not going to be doing anything high-impact at all for the next 5+ weeks. In fact, I'll be in a walking cast for the majority of that time (for those who don't know: a walking cast = a cast you can walk in and remove for showers). |
I have been pretty sedentary for the five days post-op and cannot handle this lifestyle any longer, especially since two weeks ago I was running, serving tables, walking at least two miles a day to and from public transportation, running up and down lots of stairs, etc.
SOOOO...can anyone suggest any exercises that can be considered cardio but that are NOT high impact? I lead a pretty active lifestyle when I have two feet, and because of the drastic drop in activity that's gonna happen, I kinda need exercises that would even make me lose weight as opposed to maintain, so as to compensate. Also, exercises I can do in my home and not a gym, as no tengo dinero.
