22 days of no running. 😦
Saw the doctor again last Monday and she was very encouraging. She even said there’s still a definite possibility of running Twin Cities, though I’m not as optimistic about that as she is. Honestly, I don’t care about running Twin Cities. I just want to be able to run for the sake of running. To run off my stress.
So the next phase, since I went 9 days in a row in The Boot without pain, is to stop wearing The Boot and try to get 5 -7 days in a row without pain. My first day without The Boot was Tuesday. It felt odd walking without The Boot. I could tell my left leg was weaker. I was babying it and walking weird on it, to try to avoid pain. No go. Still had pain Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Friday was noticeably better and what I am calling my first pain free day without the boot. Saturday too. Crossing my fingers it continues.
I have my first physical therapy appointment tomorrow. I’m really anxious to get in there and see what they think and get some exercises to strengthen it.
Biking on the trainer and water running just aren’t cutting it for me. I miss running. So much.
