So I had my appointment at the doctors today – Tuesday – 3 days after my last long run.
My foot still sore, but better than it was – felt less claw-like.
Wasn’t my usual Dr, but wanted to get seen, find out what was going on ASAP to fix this if at all possible before the marathon……
What a waste of my time! He didn’t want to know, basically as far as he was concerned I was another stupid person trying to run a marathon and I should go home, rest and stop wasting his time.
Did I get a diagnosis? No. Did he suggest anti-inflamatories? No. Icing it? No.
Did he do anything helpful? No……. so frustrated
*to remember that my usual doctor is lovely and v understanding (probably why I couldn’t get an appointment with him for over a week………)
Apologies for the language in the picture, but feels pretty accurate right now
