What's there to say? Warning: no fun



Somehow, despite my best efforts at willpower, I can't resist a garbo mandate. So here I am. 

Nothing to see here, however. Injury after injury, all involving left foot. This time I was working slowly back to running, doing intervals of one minute run, one and a half minutes walk, and did a 5k that way in early November (PW of 45 minutes, but I was kind of excited to think it was a beginning.) Woke up the next morning in pain (surgical ankle) and am now going through the familiar routine of waiting a month for a doctor's appointment. Probably to be followed by a month in a boot or a cast before I'll be even allowed to have an MRI.  Meanwhile bracing it everyday and taking nightly ice baths. 

I'm pretty close to renouncing my Loop membership. Much as I love you all.  

Aren't you glad you asked, garbo? Maybe I'll learn to play Muskrat Love on the oboe.

Well, being injured is always a bummer, but I've learned that in the times you are not running (or running a little, or running then not running, then running, or whatever isn't running regularly), that you never really stop being a runner.  I've been on the bench for a few years and only last year was able to start putting together a comeback.  Hope you get there too!  Good luck!

I'm so sorry.  This is so stupid that you have to go through all of this before you can get the care you need.  I hope somehow you can get fast tracked to an MRI.  Or if I'm getting what I hope, I hope the pain goes away as quickly as it appeared.

Keep us in the loop.  ❤️
