NOT AGAIN!?!?!?!

2012 was an historically awful for my feet.  When we were down in Islamorada for my brother's wedding I severely injured my left foot.  I made the horrid (and dangerous) mistake of jumping in one of the pools without fully realizing how deep it was.  When I hit the bottom my knees were locked and I took quite a jolt.  
At the time I didn't realize that I had hurt myself, but over the subsequent weeks my foot began to hurt more and more.  In the end it turned out I had a 2.5 centimeter longitudinal tear in my peroneus brevis tendon and traumatic pantar faciatis.  To make a long story short, in the early summer I spent 6 weeks in a hard cast and 2 weeks in a boot.  When that didn't work I had surgery in October and then spent 5 weeks in a hard cast and 4 weeks in a boot.  I also spent a total of 8 weeks in physical therapy.

Now here I am, a year later, and my poor left foot is finally doing great.  I have started really trying to exercise regularly.  Turns out I overdid it a bit.  I appears that 3 weeks ago during one of my workout I worked a little to long and a little to hard.  After suffering through some fairly intense pain I decided to go the my trusty podiatrist.  
She believes that I now have a stress fracture in at least one, if not two, of the metatarsals in my RIGHT foot. 

I am back wearing that darn boot! 
The MRI is scheduled for Friday to verify and then I will learn how long I have to wear this stupid  thing!
