Maybe we should change our name from Crazy M to Crippled M. The Crippled M bunch had his and her MRIs this month. I told y'all about the husband's at the first of the month. Of course, his was a little more serious than mine. I had one last week. Trying to pin point my leg issue. Since I've been running more consistently, my pain has returned. The husband called the doctor and made me go back. Ended up having an MRI last week.
Got the results today. It's my Achilles. (Isn't that what I've been telling the doctor for over 3 months now!) Good news he said, I don't need surgery. Bad news, I can't run. He's sending me to physical therapy for a month to see if it helps. If not, then he will go in with a needle to make the tendon bleed to promote healing. Doesn't that sound fun!
I am so bummed. I need to continue to run. I have to start my marathon training in August. In order to be ready to start my marathon training in August, I need to be running now. Do you get my issue here?!
The doctor said he understood I wasn't hearing anything but bad news. He stated he realized he took away my "crack." But I could do the elliptical or ride a bike for exercise. That's when I started pouting and said "I hate the elliptical!"
So now I'm wallowing in self pity. It's leading to this...
Yep, I'm drowning my sorrows in Diet IBC Root Beer!
It's a slippery slope
