Sorry, I know I’m a broken record. I’m tired of hearing me talk about my injury too. For more happy thoughts, go back and read this post, I really miss those unicorns.
It’s one of those days where I’m starting to feel like I will never heal or run again. I know these feelings come and go during any injury, so when they come, I do my best to distract myself. Wallowing is never a good option. Especially since wallowing usually includes very large amounts of candy. This shopping trip back in January may have been a wallowing motivated trip:
Although, who knows, maybe I just needed to pick up a few quick dinner ingredients. I have a lot of recipes that combine swedish fish and milk duds, don’t you?
Anyway, I know these feelings tend to leave as fast as they come. But I’m starting to get more concerned about the third finding from the radiologist:
3. Low-grade longitudinal tearing of the peroneus longus.
I was telling someone about it yesterday. She told me she had a complete tear of the peroneus brevis tendon (located right next to the peroneus longus) and had to have surgery to repair it. I told her I had been pool running and she was surprised I was allowed to do that since that was the one thing she was not allowed to do. It apparently puts too much stress on the tendon. But the reality is that my doctor didn’t even tell me that I had a tear. When I read the radiologist’s report, I assumed she didn’t mention it because it’s minor and would heal with the rest I’m taking for my stress fracture. I decided to do a little internet research last night and well, you know how that goes. The internet is a scary place. The news definitely wasn’t good. I’m trying not to freak out too much (HA!) until I know more. I’m planning to make an appointment with a foot and ankle specialist to have them read my mri and give me a second opinion. I just want to make sure I’m doing everything I should be doing right now to heal as fully and as quickly as possible. But it’s getting harder and harder to be positive. It’ll be 7 weeks this week since I’ve run. I just feel so frustrated!
Okay, enough about that. Yesterday was a fun and busy day. We went to a surprise party for my friend’s 40th birthday.
So cute! I will be running Marine Corps in October with these two. So excited.
We are goof balls.
Off to distract myself with some spinning and body pump. Nothing like a great workout to lift the mood! Happy Monday!
