So my foot has been hurting me off and on for a couple weeks now and instead of slowing down my workouts (aside from the couple days I had to take of w/breathing issues and being diagnoses with asthma) I kept going, pushing through the pain. Finally the last two days it has become unbearable...I mean I had to stop mid-cardio last night! I decided that I had to go to the Dr.
Long story short I ended up in the emergency room today and they poked around on my foot, listened to what I said/how I said it hurt and when it hurt, took x-rays...the whole she-bang! So here is the "WHAT?!?!" Dr says that there are no obvious fractures on my foot but it sounds like a stress fracture which wont show on a regular x-ray. That will require a MRI or bone scan which requires an order from my family Dr. So for now, I am to do NO RUNNING, NO AEROBICS, NO LESLIE SANSONE!?!?!?! ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME??? for TWO WEEKS!!! If I'm not better I am to get the MRI to check for sure about the stress fracture and I may end up in a boot or surgery.
He did say that I can use a bike if I have access to one or a gym. And luckliy my state taxes came in today so my hubby is purchasing the bike as I type (we had already decided to get one for the workout room anyway, so good timing I guess). So I will have that option for my cardio BUT....
I am just so devistated that I have to TEMPORARILY (I make it caps because it IS only temporarily) stop training for my 5K and everyone knows how much I love my Leslie dvd!!!
But life goes on, this will not stop me (I seem to be saying that alot here lately). I will bike my little heart out and focus more on my strength training...I have been neglecting that anyway.
