I have not run in nearly a month now. The last run was on February 1st, which resulted in the foot injury and as diagnosed couple of weeks later it seems to be a stress fracture.
Since then, there hasn’t been much improvement and some pain is still noticeable even when walking. I will not run the Kinvara Half Marathon this weekend and not sure when will I be able to return to running. According to my physio, this can be another 6 weeks.
In the meantime, I have joined the local gym and will concentrate on no impact exercises. I’ll be doing a good bit of swimming and indoor cycling/spinning. I should also start cycling to work soon and hopefully get out on the club spins at weekends, however the weather in Galway is rather bad at the moment. I suppose the right thing to do is to ‘harden the f*%k up’ and do it.
Can’t wait to be able to run again…
