I returned to the Orthopaedic doctor today, approximately 6 weeks after my initial visit, only to report that my foot had worsened. I haven't ran since April 1st, when I did the Knoxville Half (and probably shouldn't have ran it at all, but we won't talk about that for now).
I had been planning all along to ask the doctor for a walking boot since the lace-up brace they gave me last time was doing nothing for me and honestly, was very impractical for me. The doctor kindly replied that the boots have very little arch support which is what my foot desperately needs and that he typically casts for this problem....so here we are.
40 years old and receiving my VERY FIRST CAST EVER.
Of course I had to choose pink!!
I will get the cast removed at 3pm on May 29...just 3 days before we leave for Disneyworld!!!
