I'm going to keep it brief... the doctor said I'm going to live! Dr. Magic Hands actually touched my nasty runner's foot and did a couple poppity pops and rubbity rubs (yes, this is all very technical... I'd tell you exactly what he did, except I haven't a clue except that most of it hurt). There were some things out of place and likely a sprain... however, I'm good to run. I ran 0.5 miles last night and felt good. Definitely still some tenderness, but negligible pain. Today I ran 2 miles and felt fine, except afterwards I felt a bit tender. Ice, ice, ice. Tomorrow's run... maybe 5-9 miles. He gave me the thumbs up on 9 (not on 20)... but won't let me run at the lake... it's a 9 mile loop, and he doesn't want me stuck halfway around the lake. Hmmmm... smart... I don't like it... but smart. I'm being a good girl and icing, resting, icing, resting, and only running what he said was ok. I'm praying that by next week, I will be back on schedule!
