I've been a bit 'absent' the past few days - because I've been a bear with a sore paw... I've been having pain between my first and second metatarsal and ankle stiffness (I think, secondary to the ol tarsals giving me heaps) so this week I've done nothing, except a super lift heavy you-know-what session with ol' Mrs Biologica - quick newsflash to say that I finally got my 50kg bench - woohoo! - except have a pity party for my feet. No step launch with Chieko and no RPM either, I've been sadly looking at my yellow wig and funky launch sunglasses.
There, have I painted a sad picture or what?
Off to the sports doc this morning and straight onto "X Radiology" for a Bone Scan. If you're in Brisbane and want top notch radiology services - this is the place to go. They did my shoulder ultrasound injections as well as the scan today and a mini CT scan as well because the data was patchy - that will be $600.00 paid by Mr Rudd thank you very much (bulk billed!). Anyway no stress fracture or talk of Morton's Neuroma, but I have degeneration in one of my tarsometatarsal joints and my talus (large ankle bone). The doc has said "no step" until foot pain settles but to keep doing RPM and lifting heavy you-know-what.
Next stop is my favourite physio and the podiatrist. My goal is to have myself all fixed up by the time I officially reach middle age (next Saturday).
I don't know how you're meant to make any of these appointments when you work full time so I consider myself extremely lucky that this has come together so quickly!
