So now operation WALK is in effect until next week. Then I'll get x-rays and review my bone scan and HOPEFULLY get a jogging schedule. But honestly I am in no rush. I am so grateful to feel the floor with both feet. Even wiggling my toes is badass. I'll relish in this walking thing for a bit.
Also, now is the time I should start getting phantom pain. You know, pain near the fracture that *could* be the fracture but isn't. The whole mind game part of recovery sucks. That's why I like x-rays. Clear and objective proof that I am healing.
I've repeatedly asked my doctors, therapists etc WHY did I get this Sfx.? There are many possible reasons but I keep hearing, "look, you're a thin white female. It happens." It would be easier to blame my shoes. Oh well.
So this week when I wasn't in the boot I was doing about a half ironman everyday. (ha-ha, sort of) 60-90 mins of pool (swimming and aqua jogger) and then 35-50 miles on the bike. No days off.
I almost feel like I should jump on a Half Ironman. My training is their race distance...almost. But I'm not in race mode. Just a thought. However, I need to win something. I want a friggen race T-shirt! Ugh....
Here are some pictures of my last week or so:
