Today, for the first time in almost a year, I included the treadmill in my exercise routine. The last time I did it, things were getting so bad that I couldn't even do 13 minutes, and the last 5 minutes of that were so bad that I knew it was only a matter of time until I broke my ankle. Today I did 15 minutes (!), and though there were a couple of times when I dragged my toe, at no time did I have my heart in my throat, certain I was going to trip badly and hurt myself.
My left leg is getting stronger in other exercises, as well. Small changes at a time, but it's great to see a trend that isn't downhill for a change.
