Fracture foot update - we'll it's been 10 days now since I fractured the sesamoid bone in my foot, and my last run. It's been 8 days walking around in this uncomfortable shoe. The good news is that I feel very little to no pain in the foot. So I have to believe that is a good sign. On the bad news side it may be some time till I can resume activity. I am suppose to wear this boot for another 3 weeks. After that I get another x-ray which I hope means I can move to wearing just a regular shoe without running for 2 more weeks. After that I don't know. So today I'm at least 5 more weeks out, and it could be 9 weeks or more depending on how it goes. At least that is what I understand.
I haven't tried to bike yet. I may try that next week. I'm supposed to wear the shoe and not use the ball of my foot - that should be interesting.
I was also going to start some of those challenges this week - the 100 pushups, 200 situps, 20 chinups. Well that didn't happen, at least not this week.
Instead I had a ton of work to do, and honestly I didn't really feel like exercising. I wanted to sleep in, stay up late to watch some movies and TV that I fell behind on (I finally caught up and watch the rest of GLEE for this season)
So we'll see how things go next week. I'll try to get some more activity in, and hopefully I'll be able to comment on your workouts more too.
Have a happy Friday everyone, and enjoy the weekend!
