LIFE WITHOUT RUNNING....

I'm repeating myself but I MISS RUNNING!!!!!! A WHOLE F'ING LOT!!!!

So, it has been a month since I got my 2nd cortisone injection. The radiologist told me that I could start running after a month of down time but my foot does not feel fine =( At all..... and instead of pushing through the pain (like I used to do...) I will wait to run and go see the doctor at the clinic AGAIN.

I will do it tomorrow as I had to wait for my fellowship documents to be sent. The radiologist who did my cortisone injection has supposedly sent a reference to "my doctor" (no really my Dr. but the emergency on staff person) saying I need a bone scan. I also want to be directed to a orthopedist or some other specialist of the foot (but not a podiatrist) since they are not considered regular doctors in our health systems. Anyway, not running sucks and I hate it.

I've been doing REAL good with my cross training sticking to the schedule but I just find million of reasons not to do the strenght training. Not sure why I dislike it that much... but it is painfully hard to get motivated on Sundays.... so I missed last 2 Sundays LOL

Hang in there! I understand how sucky not running is. Best wishes for a reference to someone who can really help you understand what is wrong and fix it. The medical system is freaking slow!!!!

Strength training can be sooooo boooorrring sometimes. But i always feel so good afterwards. That being said, I haven't lifted in weeks. I have been such a slacker. I guess after the marathon when it's snowing out and I'm not training I'll have plenty of time.

I hope your appt goes well. Hang in there. Your cross training is looking great!

I hope you get the news you want sooner than later. Ideally, if the foot miraculously healed that would be best. Be patient. We've got great docs in Canada.

You are doing a great job at cross training. I understand how you feel not being able to run and I hope the Doctors can do something to get you back at it again. Big Hug!

You dislike Strength training? I love it, especially when you see even a little results. When you see the definition in your arms and legs, that keeps me going.....If you forget how to run, it's left, right, left.......

You ARE being smart, even though I know it's sooo hard. Hang in there - it will be worth it :)

Marcy said...

(((BIG HUGS))) I can only imagine. Sitting out is TOTALLY frustrating BUT you're doing a killer job on the cross training ;D ;D

Marlene said...

Way to keep up with the cross-training. If I can't run, I have a bad habit of becoming a sloth. I hope your foot improves SOON!

Ugh, hang in there!!
