Well so much for all my plans.
I had a 10 miler on tap for Saturday. At 2 miles in I new I was going to have to turn back to my car because my achilles was acting up. I got back to my car, stretched a little and decided to put on the new pair of sneakers I got for free that I had been contemplating running in or not. These were double-e's whereas the ones I was running in were Quad-E's. So my 10 miler turned into a 3 miler which turned into a 5 miler.
I headed out tonight in my new shoes, I was feeling great, no Achilles pain whatsoever. 2.5 Miles in an BAM!! I roll my ankle and fall onto my knee. I immediately thought my ankle was broken. I got dizzy and nauseous. I immediately limped to the curb and called Cathy to come pick me up. Luckily, I was just in da hood. So we drove home so I could dry off and throw some different clothes on. I was still a little nauseous.
If I hadnt thought it was broken, I would have probably just gotten it xrayed at work. So we headed off to the ER. They took some X-ray's. It wasnt fractures. Oddly enough, there was evidence of a tiny fracture that didnt heal properly. Dont know where that came from. So they splinted it and handed me a script for some strong pain meds. I had to go by the CVS to pick them up and some crutches. I cant really put any wait on my foot except a small part of my heel.
I am going to try and get an appointment with an ortho tomorrow and I already have a schedule appointment with my chiro on Friday. I am hoping my chiro will be able to help the healing along, especially with her laser.
Well my bad luck may be anothers good luck. I remembered I had seen someone on BT looking for a race number for Saturdays half marathon, so I sent them a message. Hopefully, I can sell it to him (for close to what I paid), since the race is sold out.
I dont know how long this will take to heal, but I guess on the bright side, it will give my achilles time to fully recover. If I see a regular ortho (versus a foot and ankle one) I am going to have them check out my shoulder. Hopefully, I can at least get back in the pool, and soon maybe even get on the bike on the trainer.
