Stressed out...

Of course it couldn't be just a simple muscle strain...

No, it's a stress fracture
Well, that's what the doc says after x-rays.
He said I could get an MRI to be positive-
but he seemed pretty darn sure
and said it would be the diagnosis either way
I chose to believe him.
It really couldn't be anything worse, so why bother paying more money.
I actually don't know if it would cost more or not.

Blast.

This really messes with my schedule.

Here's the current plan:

No running for 2 weeks.
After 2 weeks- if the pain is gone, try a slow jog.
Stop if any pain comes back.
Physical therapy exercises on my own at home- after the pain is gone.
Go back for more x-rays 4 weeks from now.

See how it goes.

Hobble Creek is pretty much out.
I may possibly still be able to do the St. George Marathon,
but I won't be able to train for it properly.
Everything is on hold for the time being.

The Goofy is the big one, anyways.
As long as I can heal in time for that,
I will refrain from cursing the world and all the uninjured runners.

Good times.

  1. Oh Jerilee, I'm so sorry, I know that is NOT what you were hoping to find out:( On the one hand, I'm bummed for you, but on the other, I'm kind of impressed- it kicks you up to this serious mojo pro athlete level to get such a real deal injury like that. You are the dedicatedest, so I know you will heal up and be better than ever!
    Take is easy, and milk it for all that it's worth, I think we both know that that's what I would do;)
