Tuesday, I went to see my foot doctor. (In case you haven’t followed my latest injury – my foot started to hurt 5 weeks ago. I ignored the pain and ran two 5k races but stopped tennis & running for 3 weeks, then went to the doctor who prescribed a boot for 2 weeks since the xrays revealed a healing stress fracture of the 2nd metatarsal…probably caused by overuse of the right foot due to a broken left ankle.)
Here’s what the Doctor said on Tuesday:
- Start weaning yourself off the boot…wear a shoe several hours a day and increase it each day.
- On Sunday, start running a 1/2 mile every other day (if it does not hurt.)
- The next Sunday, increase the running to 1 mile every other day (if it doesn’t hurt) and then increase running gradually.
- Can play tennis once I can run 2 miles every other day without any pain.
- Biking is allowed now.
So that’s that… I can’t wait to take my first running steps…Fingers crossed.
HURRAY!!!!! Very, very happy for you, Darlene – hope the transition back into running goes well.
Yay! I’m very happy for you! I hope that everything is smooth sailing for you now!
How exciting! Good luck Sunday!

Good luck, good luck, good luck, good luck!
Glad you can run, play tennis and bike!
