Injury Update - YES The Doctor Told Me To

Image
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,

Fear After A Fall

I'm not going to lie, there was a little (ok, maybe more than a little) fear about getting back on the trail. I know that this probably won't be my last fall (It Was Bound To Happen). But just touching my knee hurts, and there are still stitches, so I couldn't imagine how bad it would hurt if I actually fell on it today.

But I also knew that I needed to face that fear. So I did.

I went out this morning and hiked the exact same route that I fell on last week. I didn't run since this was my first time climbing since my fall, and it still hurts stepping down. There was a lot of wincing, and I stumbled a time or two, but I stayed on my feet. Whew!


I even managed the elliptical today.



Stitches hopefully come out Thursday - yeah!

I know the fear of falling is still there, but I also know that I can't let it stop me from running (on the trail) and the road.  I would miss this view too much!
