When did Doogie Howser get buff? I remember him being the nerdy kid doctor - if he can get buff, there is still hope for me! While at the appointment, the doctor had me do all sorts of bends, stretches, and jumps; ultimately deciding to grab some x-rays. Initially when I was describing my symptoms (pain after my run, bruising on my foot, pain that is now nonexistent while walking) he thought that it was a severe case of tendinitis. However, when he looked at the x-rays there was a bit of stress fx healing present - which may have been a blur on the film. So, I have an appt to get an MRI on Monday to confirm or deny a stress fx.
I've never had an MRI, so I am really hoping for some sort of super powers after all of the magnetic energy coursing through my body. I mean, even just a little x-ray vision would be appreciated, help pass the time while I am not running.
Either way, it sounds like I am going to be a non-runner for at least two more weeks. All the more reason to continue to hit the bike hard. So, on Saturday I did my best to do a little speed work on the bike. I biked 15 miles overall, but every other mile I would essentially go hard and fast. My "slow" miles were ~15 mph and my fast averaged 21 mph. Not sure if that speed is 100% good, but it sure kicked my ass, so that is nice.
