Just want to give y'all an update on how my Dr. appt. went today.
In case you don't know, about a month ago, my fibula (outer bone of the lower leg) became very painful after a run. It hurt so bad that I had to cut my 10 mile run, to just 5. Since then I've been in almost constant pain. I have still been running, but only doing 3-5 miles a few days a week.
A week ago the pain moved to the top of my foot as well. So now my fibula and top of foot have been in pain.
Today I was able to see an orthopedic Dr.
First they did an X-Ray, which I knew was a waste of time. After that I saw the Dr. We talked for awhile and he looked at it, then he said he wants me to have an MRI. He said it could've started out as a hairline fracture and has now turned into a stress fracture.
So I could possibly have a stress fracture in the fibula and metatarsal bones. Aughhhh!!!
They are supposed to call me back to schedule the MRI. So I don't have a date for that yet.
I'm running the Air Force Marathon in 5 weeks. I'm not counting that out yet.
Of course right now I couldn't even do the half marathon. I couldn't even do 10 miles.
But, I'm going to do it. Because I'm stubborn like that.
I know the smart thing to do right now is to STOP RUNNING, before I make it even worse.
So that's what I'm going to do.
No more running for me.
Yes, it's going to kill me. KILL ME.
But I'm going to keep my chin up, keep smiling, and take lots and lots of spin classes. At least I can do that.
