|For a sweet new year!
|Archie got in on goodness, too. (Then threw 3 slices on the floor. Jerk.)
The good news: There's nothing wrong with my bones. They did x-rays and there are no breaks or fractures at all.
|Waiting for x-ray results. Doctor's office selfies are totally normal, right?
I was terrified today, because I know if I have to take two or more weeks off, I'll need to call off the marathon. I could still do the half, but my training would be too far behind to get back on track (safely and slowly) for the full.
|We're looking at the extensor expansion attached to my big toe, the tendinous sheaths, and the inferior extensor retinaculum.
(My ultrasound is tomorrow, so I'll post an update if there's any news to share.)
In the meantime, I've got some super strong anti-inflammatories I can take...and knowing me, I'll be tempted to run today or tomorrow to celebrate the Jewish New Year if the pain dissipates with the medications.
(Nice sidenote: When I told the doctor I had pain last week but still did my 10 miles Monday because I just couldn't help myself, he chuckled, but didn't chastise me. I think I found a good one!)
|I'm still doing low-weights and high-reps...I feel like for me, it's the way to go to avoid injury and support my main goal.
|Post-workout chocolate milk. It's a must to match your cup to your headband, fyi.
