Injured midfielder, Nathan Foley has progressed in the rehabilitation of his Achilles injury by running outside.

Foley was sidelined by the injury in the middle of last season, and said while he’s been running quite slowly, he is feeling comfortable on the track.

Be part of the Tiger Army in 2013, and become a member of Richmond today.

“It’s all going well, it’s really good to make that next progression to running outside,” he told Roar Vision.

“I’ve jogged a couple of laps and it’s pulled up absolutely fine, the next step is getting the strength back into the calf.”

Foley praised the Club’s AlterG treadmill, a new piece of equipment made possible through support to Richmond’s Fighting Tiger Fund (FTF), and a key component to the rehabilitation of some injuries.

The AlterG is an anti-gravity treadmill allowing injured players to walk or run, using only a percentage of their bodyweight.

“It’s (the AlterG) allowed us to have a really calculated approach to the rehab process. It’s got me walking and running a lot quicker.

“Even now, I’ll continue to use it for calf-raises and hopping, when I just don’t want to be on 100 per cent bodyweight,” he said.

The star-midfielder is also happy to be back training on Punt Road Oval, another achievement of the FTF.

“It’s just so convenient. We have our team meeting, do our warm-up and then straight out onto the track. Following that, we jump straight into the ice baths and can have some lunch,” he said.

While his injury recovery has been tedious, Foley is happy with his progress and will continue to focus on rebuilding the strength of his calf.
