Chuckled at toetappers. Part of my compressed spinal nerve damage is manifesting itself as a 'dead' foot. These are great exercises.

From healthylivingazcentral.com -

Toe tappers, or toe taps, strengthen the muscles that flex the foot, particularly the tibialis anterior. These muscles, which are located on the shin, help with walking, as they maneuver the foot so it can clear the ground.

Because of this, toe tappers benefit elderly individuals by reducing the risk of falls. Toe tappers are also used as both a treatment and as a preventive measure for shin splints. This exercise is well suited for people who suffer from shin splints or who engage in activities such as running and dancing that have a high incidence of shin splints.

Let's do some toe tapping:

To perform toe tappers, take off your shoes and sit in a chair. Flex your right ankle to lift your foot off of the ground, while keeping your heel on the floor.

Lower your foot and repeat. Once you’ve finished working on the right foot, do the toe tappers with your left foot.

If your muscles are weak, begin by placing your foot in front of your knee. As you get stronger, move your foot back until it is directly under your knee. For a more advanced version, you can perform the exercise standing up.

BONUS/ALTERNATE CHALLENGE: Aim for three ten-minute walks. Accumulate a healthy 30 minutes of cardio, broken up throughout the day. Indoor laps count.
