I was sitting with my laptop surfing the net. My legs started to fall asleep a little bit. I needed a drink so got up to head to the fridge.
The moment I got up and put my right foot down to walk, it gave out and I rolled over on it.
Oh.My.Goodness. The pain.
I tried to find on the internet a picture to describe what I did. This sums it up nicely:
It is now 24 hours later and the whole area of the outer part of my right foot where I landed is swollen and completely bruised.
Huge throbbing pain and it's extremely sensitive to touch.
I can't put my foot down flat (or anything remotely close to flat).
Every mile I've ran this year has been injury free. No niggling pains or hint of any issues with my legs or health. Soreness from long runs here and there, but generally, very healthy. It's funny that this is the way I get injured.
From the flu that had me down and out the past 7 days, to this..maybe I'm not meant to run in March??!
I've never experienced an injury to this part of my foot before, so I'm not sure how long this will affect me..but deep down, I have a feeling this will take a while. The pain is just really BAD.
Not running is one thing..but no cardio AT ALL is honestly going to be very hard to deal with, because it's my way to release the stress and ups and downs of a day. hmm!! I need yoga in my life.
I'm definitely bummed out at the moment..but trying to stay upbeat about it and hope for the best! Come ooon universe, heal me!
