NO!! NO!! NO!! He wants to wait ONE MORE WEEK to take another X-ray. BUT, BUT, BUT, he uttered the words I’ve been longing to hear for 10 weeks now. He said “Oh, you can run 1 mile every other day OR 1/2 mile every day. I know you runner’s know when to take it easy right?”. Umm, like YEAH!
Then I’m all like, but I have to tell you something Dr. TOE! I, I, I ran a bit. And then I quickly looked down to avert his horrified glance. Yet, all I heard was laughing. A big hearty laugh too. Dr Toe was all like, “and you were afraid to tell me, weren’t you? Umm, like YEAH!! No hard done, he said.
Now, I am not sure if Dr TOE just likes me and wants to make me happy, or he really feels I can start running a bit because he feels there is more healing? I’d like to think its the latter!
I have a running date tomorrow morning with my running/doctor/mentor and I will appreciate it for what it is. A new beginning. A start. Slow and steady wins the race!!
