Very bummed

Thursday, July 26, 2012

My doc says probable stress fracture in my foot. The xray also showed my other nasty foot issues (bunion and osteoarthritis--what? Eeew!). I am probably not going to get a bone scan to confirm because I would have to pay 30% of it as coinsurance and they cost a couple thousand. So my wonderful nurse said keep a good supporting shoe on it; no running (ever), no long walks with the dog while it heals, upper body stuff only. And see how it is in a week. She wants to send me to a podiatrist. Probably will still bike. I am SO bummed.

So, how come all the other sparkers seem to be able to pick up running in midlife? I was having so much fun. And I started out carefully. . .OK, my shoes weren't brand new, and running on grass may have actually hurt because it was uneven. I was trying to be nice to my knees. SIGH.

I still have 20 lbs to lose and this seems like a real setback. I am thankful for what I have; there are a lot of people who are very sick and hurting and this is minor. But I am just so afraid of going back where I was! Never!

    I for one, will not be one to pick up running haha. Now short bursts or sprints while walking, I can dig it. But I really have no desire to just run, unless I am being chased by a bear or something.

Anyways, please take care of yourself!!!


Smile and Enjoy the Rest of Your Day!
