Jeremy Renner Takes First Jog Since Near-Fatal Accident
Jeremy Renner offered another glimpse inside his recovering journey after his near-fatal snowplow accident in January.
The actor shared a new update on Instagram, posting a candid workout video to his Instagram Stories showing him jogging on a treadmill.
"First attempt at a very light jog with weight-assisted lift for the broken tibia," Renner wrote on top of the clip. Below that, it said, "Pain is progress for me."
In the video, Renner could be heard chatting with his trainer as he jogged, referencing his broken leg and saying, "Thank goodness for the titanium."
The 52-year-old has been very open with his fans about his accident and the challenging recovery process, sharing photos and videos here and there as he works to get better.
A couple of weeks ago, Renner shared a video put together by his personal trainer showing his steady improvement in walking after the accident.
He wrote in the caption, "My PT made this for reference and to remember, you cannot walk unless you take one step at a time! #onefootinfrontoftheother."
Family, friends, and fans are all cheering the actor on. The terrible accident occurred on New Year's Day, with Renner attempting to stop a huge snowplow machine from hitting his nephew.
He faced extensive, serious injuries, with the star revealing it all in an interview with Diane Sawyer.
While the two spoke, Sawyer took a moment to read out some of the injuries, including "eight ribs broken in 14 places. Right knee, right ankle broken. Left leg tibia broken, left ankle broken, right clavicle broken, right shoulder broken," and more.
Luckily, Renner seems to have had a smooth recovery so far, working hard to get back into shape and move on from the tough ordeal.
