So I am 7.5 weeks in an air-cast and 9 weeks since the fateful run when it was misdiagnosed and actually 11 weeks since I first felt pain or had a proper run. I have felt a teeny bit better in the last couple of days. I have kept the boot on when I'm on my feet a lot but if I am sitting and reading or on the computer, I take it off and wear running shoes tied loosely. I am still sore but it feels like I could walk (slowly) for short periods of time. I haven't, though. But at least I don't get the massive pain and swelling that I was getting before. It is still a bit swollen but very little.
On Wednesday I see the doctor to get the bone scan results. Hopefully he will tell me that I can stop wearing the air-cast.
Finally I am seeing the tiniest bit of progress, which is what I have been waiting for. From the way I feel right now, we are looking at March at least for any return to any kind of running. I already have my Pfitzinger schedule that Joe recommended printed out!

Fingers are crossed and hoping for the best.

That sounds really promising! I've got fingers crossed too. Good luck at the Dr and with the progress xx

Progress is good! Hope the news from the doc is good as well. Hang in there,Ruth
