Saw the podiatrist today for a follow up about my stress fracture. The news was, well, not terribly unexpected. I have to stay away from running for three more weeks. UGH. Since I have been having some general achiness in my foot sometimes at the end of the day I had a feeling all was not healed. Of course I wanted him to tell me I was ready to jump back in to things again.
The plan he gave me for eventually starting to run again was laughable. The first week would have me run/walking 200 meter intervals. Bwahahaha. If I were a beginner, yeah, that makes perfect sense. But I'm not, and my endurance could let me go at least six miles, thanks to keeping up with the elliptical. So I will have to be careful to not push harder than I want to, when I get to run again.
Oh! And the awesome, or not so awesome, news is that I will DNS another freaking race! I can't run the 10k in Tacoma in 2 1/2 weeks. Damn it! Part of me just wants to run it no say screw it, I will recover after that. I don't want to recover right now.
Anyways, that's all the news from here. I would like to go crawl in to bed with a gallon of ice cream and hibernate. If I woke up in the spring this would all be fixed by then, right?
