Yet the time has come a little early this year. I've actually been advised to switch from this strappy little number ...
to something more in line with a boot. And they weren't talking about an up-dated Ugg or a cute little faux fur-trimmed number. More like this one in classic gray ....
And, no I'm not going snow skiing any time soon either. That's a top-of-the-line air cast. Big and heavy and not enjoyable to wear at all.
It seems that I may have a stress fracture in one or more of the metatarsal bones of my right foot.
Last time I had a stress fracture it was in my tibia after running a 20-mile marathon training run. The current stress fracture is a little more of a mystery. The physician's assistant said that I may have begun the process during my four-mile walks this summer and compounded the problem when I took my strappy-sandaled feet back to the hard, cold floors of the classroom.
Whatever the cause, I'll be sporting this boot around for the next three weeks.
And you know what? That's okay because my foot sure was hurting before I started wearing this thing.
