Injury Update - YES The Doctor Told Me To

Just wanted to give a quick update for anyone who might not have already heard. I went last week for a follow-up. I was actually in a lot of pain, as much pain as when the injury began. The x-ray did not show any fractures, BUT I was told that I could still have a fracture. I will need a bone scan or MRI to completely rule out any fractures. What did show up, however,

Ready to run?

Well who knew that doing planks and mountain climbers was the worst possible thing I could have done on Saturday. DR said I could have gone out and run hard sprints and it would have been the same stress on my broken foot. Ooops... But told me to judge my pain level. He said I'm not ready to out and just start running (probably need a couple more weeks) but that I could powerwalk with some running thrown in and judge how I am doing by how I feel the following morning. In other words, if it hurts, I did too much. I'm not ready and back off. He told me that I was going to have to use common sense with my pain level and use it as a tool to know how much or how little to do. My foot is still currently throbbing from Saturday, so no exercise today. .maybe tomorrow? :)
