Ouch filled Wednesday

 All I can say is that it has gotten to the point where I think I may need it looked at but I still do not want to. I noticed that it is swollen and and there is more pain just from walking around at work. Ugh...not sure if taking it easy on running will be enough or if I have to see a doctor..ideas, thoughts anyone??

As I was icing these two were walking above me. If you look very carefully you can see the rope around the chimney they used to scale further up the roof. They were trying to seal up some spots that have been leaking before the weather gets real wet. Sounds like lots of fun to me.

Catch me up. How long have you been in pain? Have you tried RICE (rest ice compression elevation)? Have you been able to do an easy run with no pain? If there is pain I would not run at all. Not even an easy run. Honestly if it has been more than 5 (or so) days I would see a doc. But then again after having a stress fracture I'm a bit paranoid of the slightest bit of pain.

Hope it's better soon.

So sorry! I would think about making an appointment with a doctor too. Stay off it and rest until you know something better!

Jill's advice is right on. Take care of yourself.

Given there is swelling and persistent pain - see a doc just to make sure it is nothing too serious.

I am sorry you are hurting and hope you feel better soon!
