Thats a bugger, but hey at least you now know what was wrong. Make sure you get it fully fixed, no point in making an early comeback and stuffing it up again. Heaps of time to get set for the rest of the year.

Doh!

You will have to find some cross training alternatives to keep the fitness up.

As for my dedication? Foolishness really. In a taper week, you should be finding every excuse not to run. It was very scary.

That's no good R2B.

Yes, rest then cross-training. Do what the doc/physio says. A gradual comeback with this one.

Mate I had to Google Metatarsal cause I have never heard it before. A fracture in a foot bone must be no fun at all. I hope you aren't laid up for too long?

Susan said...

oh no - so sorry r2b! That sucks. Get better soon.

at least you know what it is & how long it should take before you can get back into the swing of things...

i hope you don't go stir crazy - do you like swimming?!

Ouch!

Keep us posted on the recovery - any idea how long off?

Tesso said...

Oh crap :-( Crap crap crap.

Hope you aren't out of action for too long.

Crap!!!

Are you going to use a cast? How will your treatment be?

Hope this ends as soon as possible, why do this things happen if the only thing we want is run?
