Magically, I think I can walk at a normal pace again. As you can see below, I’m doing just about every strengthening and stretching exercise under the sun to try and recover (the AROM ones are physical therapy prescribed–Active Range of Motion). I’ve been doing weights and other strengthening just to keep a decent metabolism rate going. And, of course, I’m taking fish oil for some reason–supposedly it helps with inflammation and heart health (probably in the same way as aspirin does–it thins the blood).
