|For a sweet new year!|
|Archie got in on goodness, too. (Then threw 3 slices on the floor. Jerk.)|
The good news: There's nothing wrong with my bones. They did x-rays and there are no breaks or fractures at all.
|Waiting for x-ray results. Doctor's office selfies are totally normal, right?|
I was terrified today, because I know if I have to take two or more weeks off, I'll need to call off the marathon. I could still do the half, but my training would be too far behind to get back on track (safely and slowly) for the full.
|We're looking at the extensor expansion attached to my big toe, the tendinous sheaths, and the inferior extensor retinaculum.|
(My ultrasound is tomorrow, so I'll post an update if there's any news to share.)
In the meantime, I've got some super strong anti-inflammatories I can take...and knowing me, I'll be tempted to run today or tomorrow to celebrate the Jewish New Year if the pain dissipates with the medications.
(Nice sidenote: When I told the doctor I had pain last week but still did my 10 miles Monday because I just couldn't help myself, he chuckled, but didn't chastise me. I think I found a good one!)
|I'm still doing low-weights and high-reps...I feel like for me, it's the way to go to avoid injury and support my main goal.|
|Post-workout chocolate milk. It's a must to match your cup to your headband, fyi.|
How is your week going?
