I give up!

I must have jinxed myself with my previous post after my test run last week. The next morning I was at the doctor with a different issue.

In November 2013 I dropped a piece of glass into my foot that gave me quite a bad cut. It healed just fine and all was well, but last weekend the scar started swelling a bit and by Monday evening I could see it was infected.


November 2013

Tuesday morning I could hardly walk it was so painful and a trip to the doctor was the only option. After some very painful digging the doctor actually found a tiny piece of bone in my foot. It seems that the piece of glass chipped this off when it fell and it finally worked itself out of my foot now.



I was amazed at how painful this has been. I can't wear normal shoes yet and obviously no training was possible for the past week.

18 Months after the initial cut I am back to this...

It should be all sorted by the end of the week. Leg, back then foot... I hope that is that!

Have a super week everyone!

Did you break a mirror in the last 7 years? I hope it heals quickly and you're feeling better soon.

I just left you a message on FB asking how you were (I am a terribly blogger these days) so decided to pop over and check on you. Ugh, Johann. You SERIOULSY need to catch a break and get back to running. Hopefully this is the end of the issues and only good things ahead! Saw you entered a cycling race, too. That will be tons of fun and a great distraction while your foot heals! Take care, my friend!
