He taped my foot really well and instructed me to leave it on for 72 hours. Start taking Aleve or Ibuprofen 3 times a day to reduce inflammation and after removing the tape, ice for 20 minutes daily.
This afternoon I went for a run and stopped at a little over 2 miles but felt great. Hopefully things have cleared up. I am still taking the Aleve per doctor's orders and have been icing for at least 20 minutes a day. Today I iced right after my run and will ice again this evening.
I can't say enough good things about Runners Gate. If you are from the Twin Cities area, I highly recommend you check them out. They were so helpful and did not rush me in any way. I spend an hour trying on different shoes and running on their treadmill. And when I realized my keys and cell phone were locked in my car, they let me use their phone to call my insurance company and allowed me to hang out in the store while waiting for the company to come unlock my doors. Oops!
I got some new snack bars today......
I can't wait to try them out! I have heard such great things about them. Definitely going to break into them for my afternoon snack.
And now I leave you with a picture of me with a couple of nasty cold sores :(
Baseball season has started for my boy so even though we had 6" of snow a couple of days ago we are off to a tournament this weekend. Forecast says 70° and sunny! Sure hope they are right!
