No thank you. Not for me.
Today was to be my final visit to see Dr. C regarding the peroneal tendon. I called to cancel last week, as I now live out of state. Not to mention that I have already spent $622.42 out of pocket to the foot clinic thanks to DA BOOT, DA BRACE, MRI, etc. I asked that Dr. C call me. And so he did. But I did most of the talking. Go figure.
I confirmed that my ankle is still always a bit swollen, just like he said it would be (indefinitely). I confirmed that is was basically pain free. I asked if I'd have to wear DA BRACE forever (a girl has to wonder). He said I was eligible to start weaning myself from it.
Funny... I did my first non-brace run this morning. 2 miles. Actually I walked the first mile and ran/walked the second. The aftermath? A bit sore, but I figured as much. I will wean, not go cold turkey, FYI.
Worldwide Half Marathon training starts soon. Coach Terry is preparing my plan right now. I admit, I wonder how I'll ever do 13.1 when I struggle with 2-4 miles. He assured me I can and reminded me that this is why we train. Smart man!
