Headed out for an easy 5 miler today and at about 3.5 miles in, the old familiar pattern set in. My leg tingled, felt like there was a blood pressure cuff on it and soon enough, my entire foot was numb. I stopped and walked for a while and started to jog again when it subsided. By the end of the 5, however, the numbness was back just like pre-surgery.
I won’t write much more today because I’m far too emotional to share it with the world, but I am extremely upset and frustrated at this turn of events. I spent twice the amount of time in rehab and took it so painfully slow in returning to running to ensure that this day wouldn’t come. Not sure what to do now that I’m right back where I was in March.
