I went to the gym to see how far my feet would let me run. I only made it 3.57 miles. I had 7 1/2 miles on my schedule. Obviously I was pretty pissed at myself. My foot won another battle. I was so upset that I called the advice nurse.
He gave me the news I knew I was going to hear and didn't want to. I need to stay off my foot as much as possible, keep it elevated, keep antibiotic cream on it and ice it. It should take about 1-2 weeks to heal. The good news is that I'm just finishing week #1 and it's looking better.The other good news is that I will be concentrating on my abs and arms. I should have a pretty good looking 6-pack by the time the foot rest is over. It's going to be weird not running, stepping or anything like that.
I took the news hard. I've never had any sort of injury while training for anything. I've never trained for anything. I may be over doing the emotions, but it's how I feel. I know I don't have a major injury and it's only 2 weeks, but I'm a slow runner and need all the training I can get.
This will be me on the weekends and I will be giving my foot as much rest as possible. I hope it gets better, because I have a race in 2 1/2 weeks and another in 3 1/2 weeks. I'm going to be running in them either way.
I hope everyone else that has an injury is healing nicely and took their news better. I was a big baby for this little news. Sorry for making my small injury out to be something major. I know it's not. Thanks for listening. My hubby doesn't understand.
