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.
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.
