Hi it’s me, the lazy blogger and I’m back again after another long break!
A week or so ago I mentioned I hurt my ankle and was on crutches. Well I’m off crutches now but I am in one of those hard plastic boots and will remain in one until December 27 or maybe even longer!
I don’t even have a cool or exciting story to tell about hurting myself. I basically just took a step (I wasn’t even trail running, I really just took a step -ok, a hard step) and felt a POP inside my lower leg. I knew right away it was bad news because I couldn’t bear any weight on it and it swelled instantly. The pain was crushing.
Now I’ve had an MRI and met with a surgeon so I have more details. Turns out I ruptured my posterior tibial tendon. The doctor gave me the option of getting surgery right away or waiting a couple months, wearing a boot and then doing physical therapy to see if it will heal enough on it’s own. I chose the non surgery option and I am hopeful it will heal.
So aaaaaaanyway. No working out for me for a couple months. At least nothing that involves my legs anyway. At first I was really upset about that but then after I really thought about it, I decided 10 weeks isn’t really that long and to be quite honest, I’m now looking forward to not being sore for the next 10 weeks. I’m also really excited to read some books, watch tv, stretch and SLEEP! You know, those aspects of wellness I normally neglect. So don’t feel sorry for me, I’m doing fine! Except since I can’t work out I have to be really extra diligent about what I eat which means no treats. Expect some really healthy recipes to come soon.
Lilly is doing great too! She is still battling an ear infection which gives her a tilted head (so cute) and makes her stumble (also darling) but I can tell she feels really good and she has
tons of energy her normal amount of energy. She is quite perky in the morning but then settles in for her morning nap after being awake for about 30 minutes.
Here she is doing her donut impression.
Until then, I’ll be on the couch with my leg propped up reading a book!
