Once I got into the imagining room I was greeted by FOUR doctors. I guess they all wanted to see my purple nail polish! That's what happens at teaching hospitals I suppose. Actually, they all ended up being very personable and did a fine job with the injection. It took a while for them to figure out an entry way for the needle and they ended up deciding on going in through the side of my foot at the base of my big toe. It wasn't a walk in the park, but it wasn't terrible either. I could do without the pressure that makes your joint feel like it will explode when they put the cortisone in, but other than that it was okay.
I'll have to confirm with Dr. W, but I should be taking two weeks off and then starting on a return to run plan. I think I'm going to sneak in some non-weight bearing leg workouts during the next couple of weeks so I don't lose all of my progress. Boy is it hard not to do HIIT in the mornings after I got used to doing it!
