Take time with a wounded hand, cause it likes to heal

October 2, 2007

I just got back from my doctor’s office where I got to see the results from my blood test, X-ray and bone scan.  Blood results were good and the X-ray didn’t pick up on anything, no surprises in those departments.  The diagnoses from the doctor who looked at the bone scan was that I have a “Probable stress fracture base of the right metatarsal. Probable stress fracture right navicular bone” and “shin splints left tibia.”  My doctor had to make sense of “probable”.  My foot hasn’t felt this good in a long time as I’ve only run once since September 15th.   The plan is to start running this week and ramp-up really slowly and supplement with pool running and biking.  I was a little worried that the results would of been worse and I would of had to take more time off, so this is good news as I definitely feel like running on the trails!

My first race back will most likely be an 8km in Van Cortlandt Park on November 3rd in NYC.  It will be a fun weekend for the Speed River team to compete as a team in a XC race and also to watch the American Olympic Marathon Trials.  Since I’m not even running yet I will likely treat the Nov. 3rd XC race as a workout and then lay it down later in November in Manchester, CT.

Tomorrow I’ll be taking part in the world record attempt for the most people to walk 1 km at the same time.  There are tons of sites across Canada that are taking part and I’ll be talking about promoting an active lifestyle at the Fergus site.  Later this week I’ll post an entry about the best practical joke ever played on me, always a crowd pleaser.

    Dude, if you want to ramp up REAL slow, come on down to Fall Festival and run with me.
