I apparently have the slowest healing broken bone ever. Had another doctor's appointment yesterday and the fracture line is still faintly visible, eleven weeks after my fall.
So I'm still in my boot although I get to switch to an air cast on August 10th. I go back for x-rays around that time, too, and see where we go from there. It's healing, it's just healing very, very, very slowly.
Obviously this injury has completely wrecked whatever running plans I have made and at this point -- considering I still have at least two weeks to go, possibly more plus physical therapy -- I may not be running until late fall if I'm lucky.
Which brings me to today's post! As I mentioned in my FitBloggin recap post, one of the sessions I attended was Be A Consistent Blogger...Forever, led by Nellie from Brooklyn Active Mama. The conversation was fantastic and I came away with a ton of ideas.
One of the things discussed is that people like lists. Hell, as a reader I like lists, so I'm going to try and incorporate more of them in the blog starting with this very first one which is Ten Truths About Being An Injured Runner:
Have you ever been injured as a runner?
Love from the ashes,
