My foot still hurts! I ran on Wednesday and it felt fine. Then yesterday I did the elliptical. Today, I went out for a run and did four miles. My foot KILLED for the last half mile or so. CRAP! What am I supposed to do? Just rest? If I were one of those in shape people who actually likes to exercise it would be ok to rest the foot until it felt better. But since I'm one of those prefers-to-lay-on-the-couch kind of chubbies, I really can't just hang til it feels better because I'm afraid I'll make that some sort of month-long or more excuse.


Do I see a doctor? It's so annoying to do that though. First you see the regular doctor and they basically will do nothing but send you to some ortho person. Fine, except you know they won't have an appointment til like January. Then you'll go there and wait forever and they'll just send you for and x-ray....blah blah....such a pain in the...foot!

  1. Yes, yes, yes, make an appointment with your doctor on Monday Morning.

    Don't tell them that you're starting out, explain that you are an athlete training for a half marathon. Explain why this is such a set back and that you can't wait a long time to get things started healing. Be firm, see if the first guy will order the xrays to save time before you get in an an ortho. Your primary care may be able to diagnose something if you can just get him to look at that picture. There is no reason he shouldn't be able to diagnose a broken bone, if that is the case. Also, if you already have an xray it will save time in scheduling an MRI if it's a soft tissue issue.
