I'm back from my appointment.
What she thinks I have going on is:
1. Leg discrepancy (which can only be determined with a scan)
2. Neuroma on the ball of my foot (determined by Xray)--treated by cortisone shot in foot.
.... so I'll be going in on Thursday to get the scans done. Then I go back to her on May 18 and she'll go over the scans with me.
3. Lack of flexibility in ankles which means when I run I probably go from heel to ball of foot and no in between which is probably causing all the shin/calf pain.
4. Pelvic something or other
.... Treatment plan to start 4-6 visits with a "specific" chiropractor and ONLY this chiropractor which I can't get in with until June 2nd.
She didn't say I couldn't run but obviously if it hurts I'm not going to. ha! So I'll still attempt it and well, if it hurts I wont do it. Guess the bike will have to be my friend for a while. Sigh.
At this point, I really don't know if I'll be doing the half marathon in June. I really don't. I don't know if riding my bike is going to give me the legs to run 13 miles. It's definitely not the same and I don't know how quickly they can fix me either.
So, I'm getting really bummed and I know there area always other halfs but it sucks knowing that the few months we have sunshine I can't even run in it. God, why do I even buy cute running clothes anymore. ha!
