So my sports medicine doctor said 5 more weeks. No stress fractures on the MRI or anything that really stood out to him so he concluded a bone bruise from overuse and told me to not run for another 5 WEEKS. 5 weeks. I have already not ran for a month now. that will be over 2 months. Injuries could be the most frustrating thing for a runner.
I was mad for a while (still kinda am) but I can't feel completely bad for myself when I can strength train, swim and bike and keep my fitness up as much as possible. I will have to ease my way back into running and be very careful about the pounding on my body since I run on concrete the majority of my runs. Im looking forwarded to my summer class being done, and having more time to cross- train!!!
May not be running but still treated myself to a cute Oiselle Flowy Tank in punch color :) Super cute and super comfy to casually wear around and hopefully run in soon! I also got a free trial sample of KT-Tape from Runner's World magazine! looking forwarded to trying it with my foot to see what all the praise is about!
head up, wings out
