Good times going on at the Coleman house. Finally some nice weather. Week ago Monday had a nice run...took a big step, no roll, twist or pop, and continued running. I was laughing because I was glad I didn't do a face plant. (In retrospect, that would have been much better). Started feeling some discomfort that afternoon and it progressively got worse. I took Tuesday and Wednesday off, felt ok Thursday morning so I went for another run. Run was a little uncomfortable (Clue 1) but I kept going. Finished 4 miles and I couldn't even walk. Took Friday off. Saturday I woke up early and felt less than ok, but decided to push it. (Clue 2). Got one mile and couldn't run anymore. Symptoms were the following: Acute pain on medial malleolus with swelling, significantly more swelling on lateral side. The more I was on my foot the worse it got. Dr. on Monday showed nothing on Xray, but played it safe and had an MRI last night at 10:15. This afternoon my Dr. called with the news. Distal tibia fracture (transverse and malleolus). So this lovely accessory for the next 4-6 weeks. We will do an xray at 3 weeks to see how it is heeling. Dam to Dam in out for next Saturday unless somebody has some kind of miracle cure... I am not a happy camper. So my running shoes will sit in this corner as a reminder each day that I will get back to where I need to be. I guess I will have to postpone the half a little longer. Why couldn't I have just made it 11 more days? SERIOUSLY!!!! I guess I wasn't joking about the summer trendsetter. First the nice bandaid on the face and now the walking cast up to myknee...it's hot!
Here are some cute pics of McKay to brighten this post just a tad. This is what happens when she wakes up on the wrong side of the bed:
This is what happens when it is raining and she is bored:
This is what happens when she is trying to cart the bike up and down three flights of stairs throughout the day:
Hope you all have a better week that mine has started thus far. I CAN be grateful it isn't worse, but right now that really isn't helping. Maybe an extra large hot fudge, marshmallow and caramel sundae from DQ will do the trick!
