Let me know if this hurts.

Flex your toes for me. Does it hurt when you flex your toes?
No.

Does it hurt when I push here?

No.

How about here?
mmmm, no.

Anything?
No.

Here?
Nothing.

What about here? (He pressed on my leg toward the inside, about 3 inches up from my ankle)
OWOWOWOWOWOWOW!

Okay, well let's just get that x-ray. Meanwhile, you know the rule: If it hurts, don't do it for a few weeks.
How much is "a few?"

What have you got in mind?
I'm signed up to do a 50 k trail run in 3 weeks.


Hmm. Well, let's just see what the x-rays say, okay? Meanwhile, I think you're right not to do anymore long distance running on pavement. And hey, you can still bicycle!

Oh YAY.

  8. I'm with the yaysasers on the bike thing. Be one with the saddle! Of course, I'd be crying if I'd been given the advice to not pedal and go run instead.
    Great blog and congrats on your achievements!
    M.E.

Even though I was in awful shape in 2016 I was still stubborn and foohardy...so I spent a year running down whatever fitness base I had left...
