Hey everyone! How are you all? I am doing much better, my foot is on the mend. It is taking a whole lot longer to heal than I thought. It has been driving me nuts not being able to run and Crossfit. But I have been reminding myself this injury will only be a few months of my life. I was psyched to go back to the doctor a few days ago for another xray to see what my progress was like. My foot felt good and I was pretty sure my xray would reflect that. But…alas my xray still showed a pretty significant break
You can see some immature bone forming on the inside of the bone to the left, that is called a callus. It is going to fill in the break in a few more months. The appointment was really informative. It wasn’t told what I wanted to hear but I was glad that I am making progress.
The bad news from the appoitment:
- My foot is still pretty broken
- It will be at least 6 more weeks before I can think about running or crossfitting (believe me I asked a million questions about that).
The good news from the appointment:
- I CAN drive again
- I got the walking cast off and look normal again! That walking boot was seriously hindering my ability to create a cute outfit. NOTHING looks cute with a walking boot cast.
- I CAN workout on the stationary bike and the elliptical and lift weights. I can squat too, but not heavy weight.
We are currently in Florida visiting my sister in law, brother in law and nephews. I have spent every morning this week on the Deb’s elliptical. I haven’t been on an elliptical in years! It’s no running, but I’ll tell you it does the trick I have been having pretty good work outs on there. My loving husband likes to sneak attack and photograph me when I am getting after it on the elliptical.
Thanks, dear! Yes, I am brave enough to post a picture of me with sweaty workout face. You know I look good, people
After my workout I had some oatmeal. Something else I haven’t done in a while. Funny how when I am in the warm tempts I am craving oatmeal but when I was home in Boston I was craving smoothies. This girlie is ass backwards.
There you have it folks! I am alive, and my foot is on the mend. I look forward to letting it fully heal for a pain free and healthy summer and fall race season!
Have you ever had an injury that took way longer to heal than you thought? How did you deal with it?
