On Monday I met with my sports podiatrist. I got my orthotics. I asked, “When can I run again?”
“Well,” he said. “Twelve weeks for sure, but 16 is better.”
I asked for specific dates and he said to count 16 from May/12 from when I first went to see him in June. So, September 10th.
“But I have a 10K at the end of September,” I whined. He said I could do it, but I would have to run-walk.
I feel ready. I want to get outside. I’m going to start walking first. Tomorrow. And I’m taking the dog with me.
