7. Fingers Crossed
Last updated: June 21, 2011
Friday June 10th to Thursday June 16th. Motivation levels seemed to hit an all time low over the weekend as I was feeling a little down in the dumps due to the occasional sensation in my foot while walking around without the boot. The orthopaedic surgeon had said that I could start walking around on it after 4 weeks but maybe I pushed it a little too far?! I hope not. Sessions in the gym have gone fine as usual but I’m just dying to get back running at this stage. I’ve been feeling down and somewhat stressed this week but I know myself its all apprehension ahead of my appointment with the specialist this morning. I’ve assessed my foot myself and am completely pain free on all movements that previously aggravated it. The end of one movement still causes a slight sensation of the 1st TMT joint but I wouldn’t even describe it as a discomfort; just an awareness. I’m hoping to get the all clear to get back running today. At least I could make an appearance at training tonight then I’m expecting to have to go for another MRI scan too to see if the stress fracture has actually healed. If I can return training, I’ll have to take it easy and listen to my body, especially over the next 2 weeks. Fingers crossed all goes well today....wish me luck!
