What you said! Glad that the early signs for your recovery are promising, hope that continues.

I'm trying very hard to restrain myself from trying too much too soon; one overambitious episode (a yank on the arm at a too-soon contra dance; a slip and fall during a too-soon run in the woods) could spoil it all. But I know myself, I'm going to be hard to restrain. Saying that publicly and repeatedly, such as here on AP and in conversations with friends, is part of my strategy for inducing myself to be sensible!

Yes, slip and fall verboten! You can walk/jog parking lots or ice-free surfaces. There's a 2 mile loop around Bow HS and the elementary and middle schools - always plowed with one road crossing. So for any running when there's snow & ice, this is virtual peace assured. Preparing for the Boston marathon in Newton in the 70s with ice/snow & traffic was often trying! The link is to a screen shot. G maps pedometer screens were ad free in the past. I used to use it quite a bit.

I know Sharon Crawford orienteered with a sling. I think it was a fractured humerus (would have to have been a hairline fx). Falling was verboten. I think she was successful. She's certainly long healed.
