Last Saturday I started to feel a pain on the top of my foot when I flexed my toes and while walking. I couldn’t think of anything I had done to it to make it hurt. I ended up making an appointment with an orthopedist to get it checked out because I don’t want to prolong the problem and be out of commission from the love of my life, boot camp.
I was able to get in yesterday to see the doc. I walked in without pain and thought maybe I should have cancelled. I’m glad I didn’t cancel because the eye candy was amazing. It was a revolving door of hot docs. First a neck and shoulder specialist came in to introduce himself even though he wasn’t going to be his patient. Hmmmm. Then the foot and ankle specialist saw me who was even hotter. He joked that I should enlist instead of paying for boot camp. Haha, sorry buddy but I’m not looking for that type of commitment but I’ll laugh at your joke because your hot.
Turns out I have a stress fracture. The x-ray showed small cracks in my bone that if I don’t ease up on it, it will break. Oh pooh. Now what do I do?
Thankfully the hot doc offered alternatives to my running and boot camp: swimming, elyptical and the bike. Three things that bascially have little to no impact on my foot. This isn’t such a bad thing because I do like to swim which is a great full body workout.
So, what’s the message here? Even though your body may be injured or unable to do certain workouts it doesn’t mean you quit. Find something that you can do and move forward.
Oh, and get a hot doc 😉
