Bone and the new gym

Today I had my doc appt. I wore my boot but brought my shoe b/c I knew I was walking out with both shoes on. After waiting an HOUR to see the doc, she did the test with that silver pronging thing ? Then she took the xray. She came in saying how well I was healing and that my xrayed looked good, then she mumbled something about another 2 weeks in the boot. I was cheering from the news about the HEALED good looking xray. then I said wait "did you just say another 2 weeks in the boot ?". YES she said. She said I can swim, and spin, and I can take the boot of and do some walking around the house. But she can still see some fracture and wants me to keep the boot on for 2 weeks, then after that no boot needed but no running for another 2 weeks, then i can start. Of course by then I will have forgotten how to run. ok I am kidding, but you get my drift.

I was seriously shocked. I thought for sure I would be out of the boot and have maybe another 2 weeks of no running. She explained that she sees some fracture still and would hate for me to damage it and be injured longer. I see her point.

So now I need to set up a schedule to make sure I am spinning, swimming and doing strength on arms. I have a plan and can move forward. I am going to be so gun shy about running.

I am no longer at the luxury gym, I am at the Y. I have only been twice, stationary bike. All is fine. I will sign up for the masters program for swim. Change is good, change challenges you, change makes you grow.


  1. Aw, so sorry! Totally get the disappointment. BUT--you have a plan/a schedule. Two weeks from now no more boot, then only two weeks more and you get to run!! It will come back, trust me!


what are you triing
