The ankle saga continues.....

....and it sort of does not look good. Well, the doctor did not think I needed to see a PT...yet. **sigh** But I have to put that damn aircast back on....for another two weeks. UGHHHHH! But I can run with it on. (I gave the doc a "WTF?!" look when she said that.) After picking on my ankle, she believes that I REALLY stretched the tendon/ligaments ALOT (no S***!), which may take a little bit longer to heal. But she thinks I should continue the plan I already have...and NOT to push it when I am not ready. She did tell me if the issues continue, then contact and she will refer to a PT. I do not want to get that point...period. It would mean giving up on the marathon. HELL NO! After I left the doctor's office, I decided to continue making this a rest day and just head home after making a stop at Target for cotton socks to wear with the aircast. (The ones that I have been using were giving me this HUGE rash that I JUST got over this weekend. **sigh**) Once home, I decided to take some time to clean out my cupboards of canned goods that I wanted to give at work during a friendly competition between the law students and the faculty/staff. Well, I ended up giving 33 items towards the food drive. It gave a HUGE jump for the faculty/staff. Whooohoo! Well, tommorow and Friday will cross-training days. Hopefully the sun will come out and FINALLY make a visit. BTW, 60 DAYS before P.F. Chang's.....OMG!!!

That sounds like lunacy to run with an aircast. Kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it? I've torn tendons in my foot and I know the pain you're enduring. Stay positive, and stay up with the cross-training. Right now it may be your best friend.

I ditto Annes comment...that is kinda wacky that they are telling you to wear the cast AND its okay to run...but then I guess that's why I'm an accountant and not a doctor.

Keep your chin up! I know where you've been and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I promise!

Hope your ankle gets better quickly! Maybe just stick to cross training? I can't imagine running with an aircast would feel good!!

Running with an aircast????? That sounds kinda crazy. Good Luck!!

I'm so sorry to hear that your ankle is still giving you problems. I hope you get better soon.

A food drive competition between faculty/staff and students? This just doesn't seem fair. You have real jobs and can afford to donate much more than poor college students. Trust me, I am one.

Laurie, it was all in fun. The students were ahead of the faculty on Tuesday...by 2. Who knows?! Maybe they woke up and dug through the cabinets too. It's for a good cause...and the prize of CANDY. :D

I need to go through my cupboards this weekend and clean them out for our food drive here at work. I know there is a bunch of stuff I have that I am not eating nor will I eat and I might as well get it to someone that will!! I think I have some stuff in the garage too...
