Recovery Workout #1

I sort of lost track of posting this second workout! Sorry guys! Toe update: doing a lot better! I’m regaining the back and forth motion in my big toe, and I am back to my normal workout routine.

The first workout I posted was the one that I relied on most for the first two weeks (with some minor changes here and there). Once I got the dressing off and staples out, and I was able to put some weight on my foot again, I did this workout (or one similar to it).  This started to help me get my heart rate back up and incorporate a little cardio back into my routine.
