Hey, I broke my foot. How did that happen?

Actually it is referred to as an avulsion fracture. Instead of a ligament tearing the ligament has pulled 2 pieces of bone off its origin. I now have two small pieces of bone off the cuboid and calcaneus. After resting way too long and prescribed non-weight bearing for 8 weeks, I am going to journal "one leg workouts. I am certain someone else will eventually benefit from my pain. :)
*I did keep my cam walker (boot) on for all workouts.
*In order to save space, I didn't journal my training days, just the order of the WODs. I trained 3 days on and 1 day off. At times I took 2 days off in the beginning.
*These workouts were short even though I was not able to

    Hi there -- I realize this is an old post, but I found this picture of your foot while researching foot fractures and it looks exactly as mine does now after twisting it on a hike last week. I suspect I may have a fracture, but I have no bruising or pain. Can you tell me if you experienced any pain with your fracture? Thanks so much.

    I had an avulsion fracture. Basically when I everted my ankle the ligament pulled away a piece of bone. :) Ummmmm and yes......I experienced a great deal of pain but like all injuries they heal and the pain goes away.

    hey, how long did it take you to recover and is your foot back to normal or you still have something there?
