am - strength training and stuff. 

pm - all comers meet week #2, spectator. i had my phone taped to my face for two days to ensure i didn't miss a call, and then i missed a call from the doc while i was chasing down a bus. he ended up sending the info to my coaches, who then informed me of my fate when i arrived at the meet (buzzkill -- i had to go for an angry walk). they said 2-3 weeks of no weight-bearing (boot & crutches, no way!) + 4-6 weeks XT.

{i might go insane for real}

i had convinced myself that whatever was going on was healed or almost healed, and that i was going to get a green light to run again within 1-2 weeks. i feel completely normal just walking around doing daily activities, so the thought of strapping on a big grandma boot and crutching around just seems foolish.

to be clear, i'm not at all disagreeing with the doctor's rehab plan, and i understand that it takes time. aggressive rehab means faster healing. it's just so hard to do nothing when i feel fully healthy. with my tibia injury, i was limping around in pain, so the crutches were a welcome relief.

as much as i hate it, i'm going to follow the rehab plan as closely as possible to ensure this time off is kept to a minimum. i'll do my best, but i already know the crutch thing isn't happening. i walk everywhere i go, and i am standing/walking 100% of the time while i'm at work. my coach actually suspects that this was a factor in the injury -- not enough recovery & rest between workouts. 

some good news -- the atlanta track club owns an AlterG, so i do have access to that once i'm out of boot jail. that is going to be super helpful in keeping my fitness up getting my fitness back while still staying conservative with the ankle.

for these first 2-3 weeks, the doc says he would prefer i stay in the pool for XT since biking can stress the bone (it is in fact the fibula, btw). i'm going to work on my banana dive!
