Originally I only had pain when I would extent my foot, like to jump or push off the wall when I swim. The issue has escalated to the point of pain just when I walk. In an attempt to keep me out of the OR doc decided to try another cortisone injection followed by a month in a boot (see pic)
While this has some negative ramifications, I will not be able to attempt the half marathon or the sprint triathlon I was hoping to do. On the bright side, KB is looking into putting together a Triathlon team and I would be able to do the biking leg, so we’ll see how it all shakes out. While there is a part of me that disappointed in not being able to complete the goals I’ve set, I’m pretty proud of what I’ve done so far. There will be other events I can sign up for.
I refuse to let this slow me down, I can still go to the gym, I can still ride my bike, I can even still get in the pool, I just have to be careful. I will still go to boot camp and do what I can, doing something, anything is still better than sitting on my butt for a month! Besides, I have a trainer with super creative ninja skills in the ass-whooping department!
