A stress fracture!!!!
What, No Way, you are kidding, really…. #@&%*#$%@)&@ hmmm
i guess it could be worse. i looked at the x-ray and the doctor who is a triathlete (so there was some sympathy) although he did say that “unfortunatley you adventure racing/endurance nuts have such a high pain tolerance that you (Me) have been sucking it up for so long that i could have made it alittle worse.” that wasnt helpful either.
he went on to say… 6 weeks NO RUNNING, which might as well be a death sentence for me. Amongst other things running is a spiritual/mental/emotional thing for me. what will i do. He did say i could bike, paddle and swim as long as i dont do hills. havent seen many hills in a pool. So we did both laugh when i said that.
Oh and it gets better, i have a big ugly boot to wear too. WOW. i feel really dumb wearing this thing around. At least i can ride and paddle etc. not with the boot on of course. i came home with the boot and immediately left on my road bike to finish my ride from earlier this morning.
What does this all mean…
But on a good note i did have cold meatloaf sandwiches for lunch with fresh bread made by Robin. I guess i do have many things STILL to be thankful for.
