I took my foot injury pretty well. Even when I thought it was a stress fracture. At this point I almost wish it was just so I would know what was happening. I’m out of the boot (thank goodness) or I thought I was. I continue to go to physical therapy. I feel like I’m making progress. But now they want me to wear the boot again. I feel like I want to throw a tantrum.

She misses running too.

That paragraph was written almost three weeks ago. I am getting more frustrated by the minute. I went back to the doctor last week and she wants me to continue physical therapy. I really thought my foot was getting better until this past weekend in Boston where I really don’t feel like I over did it, but apparently I did. I’m back to wearing my running shoes to work, which in case you are wondering look awesome with my skirt today <eyeroll>.

I’m losing patience. I’m getting upset. I want to run. Hell, I want to be able to take my dog for a walk. I want to be able to dance at a friend’s wedding and not be in pain. I have given up on any races for the rest of 2014. I registered for a race in January and I’m suddenly terrified I won’t be able to run it.

I’m jealous of everyone running. I miss it. I miss running in decent temperatures. I miss running with Rosie. I miss running with Sara. I miss seeing running friends at events. I miss the time to myself. I miss the fresh air. I miss all of it.

    1. I’m at the Froedert Sports Medicine clinic right on campus. It was swollen soft tissue. “There is a small amount subcutaneous edema overlying the head of the fifth metatarsal, which extends medially over the third and fourth metatarsals “

  1. Ugh. I am so sorry. Is there another plan of action if more therapy doesn’t work?
    That last paragraph is exactly how I’ve felt for the last couple of months with my knee. Cross training is fine and dandy but it’s not running.

    1. Thanks Jen. I think I needed a mini meltdown yesterday. I went to a spin class last night and felt somewhat better.
