I knew something was off when Danielle and I hobbled from the last timing mat all the way to the letter “I”.
I was certain it was just “Marathon” soreness. The next day confirmed that it was not and so on and so on.
It hurt to put any pressure on my right foot.
I made an appointment as soon as I got home with my Physio/Chiropractor.
I just got back.
The diagnoses is..
Right foot, messed up ligament(possible stress fracture in the bone). Not the ligament that I tore back in March, this one is in the midfoot area. They said it takes 2-3 weeks before a bone fracture can show up on an X-Ray(but 95% sure it’s not that, the ultrasound that she did would have told us if it was indeed a 100% fracture, I would have felt it).
So lots of RICE for the next month… I go back on Friday.
I may need orthotics, seeing I have a flat feet.
I blame those steel bridges in Chicago :)
Thank god my season is “Officially*” over..

- mr-smit said: Dude. I am still hurting pretty bad too. Called the doc and won’t be able to hear back from them until Friday. Going to RICE it myself until then.
