Good news from the Doctor

A few weeks back I had an MRI done on my right ankle, as it has been bothering me when running, swimming and riding the bike. The pain started last summer during training as I would "click" out of my pedal while at stop signs. I thought the pain would go away, but with a little off time from training. I decided to let the doctor look at. The hardest part of the MRI was holding still for 30 minutes after having two huge cups of coffee. Last week the doctor explained what the MRI found and glad to report it can be helped with physical therapy and that I have an extra muscle on the inside and outside of my ankle. With it not bothering my this far, the doctor said there was no need for surgery and just need to check back with him in a month. Training has moved indoors for the time being with the colder weather. I am looking forward to a great 2012 getting stronger and faster in the water and on the road either on the bike or running. Here is to a healthy Happy New Year! 2012 is going to be a great year.
