The consultant checked for pain - none; push force against her hand - stronger than most healthy ankles. Yay!
I need to walk without the boot until I'm walking normally again and then I can return to normal activity. But wear it while going to & from work just to keep it protected.
Cycling (static bike/turbo) and swimming are positively encouraged. Cycling for 20 mins a day every other day at first to get back into it gently and keep an eye on how it does.

On track to start running again at the 12 weeks mark; 4 weeks from now. But if I'm walking normally before then, then I can do that gently. Though I am to wear a support for the first few months of running too.
In short, I'm happy. Despite the set-back of delayed appointments, I'm still on track in the overall timescale expectation set up front.
|Look! I'm onna turbo!
