Update

I haven't updated in a while.

4 weeks ago, I did a 10km for the Firemen of Laval.

At around 6.5 km, I hit a hole with my left foot - I walked a bit and finally finished the race. I was a bit in pain but not too bad. I put some ice when I got home and wrapped it up. IMG_1721

Went to the clinic the next day. IMG_1723

After an x-ray - was sent to the hospital as I had broken a little bone in my foot :( IMG_1726

Saw a specialist the day after and was prescribed a "sexy" boot!! IMG_1728

This explains my absence in the last month! I am in no pain - but I hate this boot! I can't run which makes me very sad - but I started going back to the gym last week to do some weights and a bit of elliptical. I have two more weeks to go then I get another x-ray - hope it is all healed!!

Sorry to hear about your injury. Hope it heals soon and you can get that cumbersome boot off. Never fun to be stuck with a cast or a boot but seems especially unkind in hot summer weather.

Oh, that is terrible! Injuries like that are so frustrating! I hope you heal quickly!

Hi, Reds. I can't find a place to contact you other than a blog comment. You took a picture of banana cake that's posted on a Food.com recipe, that I'd like to use in a blog post I wrote about my own banana cake (it didn't even occur to me to take a picture!). I blog at jenniferjensen.com. I'd credit the picture to you, with a link back to your blog here if you'd like. If you could email me at jennifergarvinjensen(at)gmail(dot)com and let me know, I'd really appreciate it.

PS: I wore the same "sexy" boot as you, but for 5 weeks. Ugh.

Thanks much, Jen
