On Monday and Tuesday there were actually moments when I wasn't thinking about my chest. I decided to start weaning off the motrin and took my dose down to 600mg 3x/day instead of 800. By Friday I felt just as bad as I did the previous weekend. Back up to 800mg....ugh! As of yesterday I also added a Zantac and if it is really hurting...I take tylenol too. So far today has been a GREAT day. I feel halfway human. Just not sure what the other half is yet..
|Halfway human...although imagine it with only one foot.|
So, either my chest hurts so badly that it is completely masking any pain in my foot, or maybe it is the 800mg of motrin I am taking 3x/day....or it could be that the break is pretty close to being healed!!
I have continued on the bike every other day for the last week. I am still steering clear of any strength training, however I am considering working my arms tomorrow. By the way, a great resource for cardio workouts is a website called motiontraxx.com
You can download workout music for free. The cool thing is that you get tracks that set your pace. Some even do intervals for you. Currently there is a series of cycling mixes. AWESOMENESS!
Tomorrow I go to the foot doctor. There is a possibility that I will be able to get rid of the boot. Which would be great for many reasons, one of which is the fact that it is FUNKY from sweating my ass off on the bike.
Stay posted for updates...and thanks for reading!
