I'm hoping someone has experience here or knows someone who's gone through this - in November I'm going to have an operation on my foot. I have Morton's Neuroma
and am going to have the actual "tumour" removed.
I started 'running' in April, by using the C25K program and I am amazed at how much I love it! I want to keep training, go for a 5K or 10K, but I'm worried about signing up for one in December, for example, because maybe I won't be healed enough.
My doctor says 1 - 2 weeks, but I'm just not sure if I believe it. I don't want to lose the level I've built up to (though I know I will a bit) but I don't want to be unrealistic either.
Should I forget about doing a 5 or 10K at the end of December and shoot for something in the springtime instead? What can I do to keep up my fitness level? I do not have a gym membership at this time, but I do have an elliptical at hom. Seems everything I like to do has me on my feet! I could ride my bike outside, but I'm worried about the weather (time to get some new workout clothes for wind/rain resistance).
Thoughts? Experiences? Ideas?
