Good news for me!

Went to the Doc yesterday for my ankle and he gave me some good news - no cortisone shot! Wow thank good ness I had worked myself into a nervous fit before I got there so it was nice relief when he said we could try other treatments. I am going to be using nitroglycerin patch (yeah I know they use that on your heart right?) which he tells me I place on the sore spot of my ankle and it will help to take away the pain (yes) and I also have to go to PT for 6 weeks. Which I am kind of relieved they can help me stretch it out more and also teach me other ways to keep this sort of thing from happening.

But the bottom line is I have tendonitis (very common for walkers and runners) which makes my ankle very tight so that is were all the friction is coming from therefore the pain is the problem. I did ask him if I could continue to take my classes at the gym and also train for the marathon. He said it is 100% ok to keep doing what I have been and not to stress so much about it that we can beat this and everything will be ok (he must of have known I needed to hear those words).

I am just relieved that hopefully in the next few weeks I will be able to get on track (8 weeks to go for Marathon coming quick) and not have any other problems.

Last night was good went to Zumba and Pilates (Doc said take more classes good for ankle who knew) and my arms are so sore I never knew Pilates could do that what a surprise. I am hopefully going to attempt to walk my 10 miles on Sunday (at the park) then work on walking on the track at the gym (hard surface just like the marathon will be).

That is such great news. I'm glad you didn't have to have the shot (no fun). I hope that these treatments are successful and that you can continue exercising - and giving me lots of great new ideas for exerciese. :-)

Wow - a nitroglycerin patch - I'll have to ask about that at my appointment for "the shot" next week! I had no idea that there were alternative therapies for pain like that one. Thanks so much for sharing!

Best wishes for pain free training for your marathon!
