Tuesday

Today is the first day where my foot has hurt while walking. I haven't done any exercise for the past several days and I'm accepting the no running thing quite well. It gets easier every day to push away the desire to run and it seems to be staying away for the most part. I have my bone scan tomorrow. My boys have kept me focused in their direction quite well and I'm thankful for the break (pun intended) and the energy I can give to them.
I've accepted the idea that I may not run until sometime in February. The first of March gives me 25 weeks to Leadville...

And when I asked my doctor what the risk is in running very moderately the e-mail response was this (verbatim):
"There is limit weight bearing and activity not completely."
Anyone have an idea what the hell that means?

My guess is a typo - he meant to say there is a benefit to not completely shutting off weight bearing activity...but just a guess.

LOL. Sorry Tim, I popped it into the handy Google translator, but unfortunately, there wasn't a Doctor > English option.

Hope you're up and running soon ...

Whaaa? I guess that's another of those "safe" answers. If no one can understand it, he's not liable if you hurt yourself. I kinda went cross-eyed reading that:)

Best of luck with the foot. I have the same thing where one day it feels fine, and the next it hurts just as much as it did from the beginning. Talk about frustrating! Sounds like you're doing a good job of keeping occupied, and that seems like it's the biggest battle.

Best Wishes,
Dave

Can't translate. I think you need a new, preferably literate, doctor.

Thanks... I see her tomorrow so I'll ask what she meant.
Dave- LOL. That's a pretty good strategy! I'm guessing your foot is OK but needs bricks to be on the statue side of being not hurter :)

Brett seems the closest?

You should try being a pharmacist. I have to try translate shit like that all day long.
