The Verdict: Broken

Monday, August 12, 2013

Here we go again...

I did indeed break my right foot last Wednesday night. The doctor was actually shocked that I have been walking around for this long without pain meds. (I still didn't take any.) The break is the outer bone that travels from the heel to the little toes; instead of a straight bone, mine looks like a lower-case y.

The bad news: No running or tae kwon do for 2 months. This means I will NOT be doing the 8k that I signed up for in September, nor will I compete in the fall TKD tournament. Grumble...

The good news: No surgery needed. No cast -- just a "post-surgical shoe" which is a lightweight version of the boot I've seen my middle school students wearing.

The best news: I am cleared for CYCLING!! Whew! What a relief! I thought for a moment that I was doomed to 2 months of pilates and strength training. But cycling? Bring it on!

So this too shall pass. Thank God it's minor -- and I do thank God. A lot!

    Wife broke her foot and fussed about her foot hurting until the doctor xrayed and told her it was broked two months later. She now fusses about not knowing it was broken!

    What a great attitude. When I started to read your blog, I expected some complaining about not being able to exercise and was mentally preparing my suggestions. Was I ever wrong. Keep up the good attitude and I also hope you do not over do it.

    Well at least there's a silver lining for cycling. Take it easy though....don't want to aggravate it.

And exactly what is WRONG with Strength Training!?!?!?!

    Good for you for not letting your break bring you down! Just be careful and don't overdo it!
