I'm not even doing a Things I Hate Thursday today, because this not running thing has made me cranky enough that I hate everything!
Well, not really everything.... but I am anxious to be running again.
I haven't run since the Chicago Rock n Roll Half on August 13th, and I didn't run much for the two weeks prior due to some thigh pain.
I went to the doctor on Monday, and she thinks I have a femoral stress fracture in my right leg, and did an X-ray.
X-ray showed nothing out of the ordinary, except a little thickening of the bone where it could be trying to heal itself.
I'm scheduled for a bone scan tomorrow... and there's a lot more involved than I thought!
I go in at 8:15am for them to give me an IV with some radioactive material, and then I have to wait around for three hours while it
I'm hoping it's not a stress fracture, but I'll be happy with a diagnosis and a game plan.
I have three half marathons scheduled in the next few months....
Green Lake Half Marathon - September 4th
Fox Cities Half Marathon - September 18th
Zooma Great Lakes Half Marathon - October 22nd
I hate it when race fees go down the crapper. :(
I'm much too cheap to handle that well.
I'll keep you all posted... hope everyone has glorious runs today and posts all about them so I can live vicariously through you...
