Well, well, well. Guess who has gone and earned herself a rest break?
The good news is that bursitis is not life-altering and I will run again in the near future. The bad news is that I have no idea how long it will take to be pain-free. Might be this weekend. Might be in a few weeks. I'm okay to chill out for a bit longer. I think.
I was prescribed some high-dose Aleve and told to reduce running as much as possible. Fortunately, the GP had a marathoning father and knew firsthand that it's really hard to tell a runner no. If things aren't better in 2 weeks, I am to report back for further poking and prodding.
I ran 3 miles last Tuesday and while I didn't have to alter my gait, I felt my Achilles the entire time. So now it's just time to enjoy a little down time and appreciate the other stuff in life.
I've been doing a little food/drink self-medicating. Sofa surfing does have its merits.
