Well, good news. I have no fracture. 

Sure sure...........our selection of footwear would seem to tell you otherwise. Maybe I'm just not a slave to fashion. 

And I'm not, but even I wouldn't wear this boot if I did not have to. 

It seems I have a Stress Reaction, but not a fracture. It's like a severe bone bruise. And it definitely is due to running. 

I will be able to run again, in a few weeks. Possibly sooner, but the doc - who is the Browns' team physician - suggested I don't run as long. 

The doc is great. He spent a lot of time with me, not just in the exam room, but to talk about the right and wrong things when it comes to the run. 

But the boot came out. and is on.  One it shall remain for the next week. We will reassess in a few weeks. 

It's a little awkward and I'm a little clumsy' walking in it. But they never mentioned driving in it - or that it would be difficult.  And it is. 

The boot is ultra-wide. It's hard to press on the gas pedal and not hit the brake at the same time. There is also no sense of touch so, I can't tell how much I'm pressing down, or if!  I was getting on the freeway at 35 mph.  People behind me were not happy.  Nor was I. 

I can still work out, but it seems all cardio is out for a week. 

I am not 100% pain free, but it's minimized quite a bit once I slapped this boot on. 

Onward and upward.

I guess you won the bet?

I am glad it wasn't a fracture or a break, but it sucks that you are out of commission for a while.

Glad to know it was not a fracture. However, regret that you are in pain and getting about can be cumbersome in those boots. sexy hairy legs, that still want to kiss and reach higher
