I want to build up strength not only in my ankle, but foot too. So I am adding the Arch Stretch! to my other exercises which consist of standing on one foot for 2mins each several times, I am getting ready to add holding weights while doing it, and stretching my calves.
Thanks to Runner’s World for the Arch stretch. Sit on the floor with both legs straight. Loop a rope around one foot, placing it beneath the ball of your foot. Gently pull back on the rope, flexing your toes. Hold for two seconds; repeat 10 times on each side.
Today will also be my first official leg workout since hurting the ankle on Tuesday August 11, 2009.
