Suspicions confirmed. I thought I had hurt my foot back in January at the GNC, but it kept feeling better until I would orienteer again. After this past week and all of the running, it was really throbbing and quite swollen. I decided it was time to figure out what was going on, and it turns out that I had fractured an outside bone on my right foot. It is now a "healing" fracture since it is 9 months old, but I still need to be in a boot for 4 weeks. At least I won't be in any more pain.
