What a good day!
I had a perfect long run, 15 km on a gorgeous summer morning. By 12k when the sun was a little hot, I headed into the woods (on a very smooth trail!) to finish up the run. Does it get better than this?
I followed the run up with a trip to the hand doctor. I did shower first but you wouldn’t have known based on the smell of the temporary cast. When the cast was pulled off I was politely asked if I wished to wash my arm. Running and casts are not a good mix.
Bad news, no waterproof cast. Good news, I should only have to wear it for 3 more weeks, followed by a splint. That is less time than the ER doctor predicted so I am thrilled! Of course this doctor asked me to ease off on the training for 3 weeks, I assured him that wasn’t necessary. He looked like he wanted to argue and then thought better of it. My theory is if I managed to put in 40 km with the temporary cast, there really isn’t any reason to stop now!
