Taken out of the running game

After a few long runs and pain increasing in my foot, I went to the Dr. And he benched me. I was told the 50% of my Plantar Fascitiis tendon is affected and it will take up to 4 months to heal. I can swim, bike and maybe elliptical but absolutely no running. I don't even need to mentioned how bummed I am about this. I was just getting into a running groove. I was also diagnosed with bicep tendonitis, which basically takes me out of swimming until the cortisone shot takes affect. Right now, my shoulder is toast... the cure being worse than the ailment was. Internet says it takes 24-48 hours for the pain to go away when it occurs. This is not my first bout of bicep tendonitis. I had it in the other should 3 years ago. I do not remember the cortisone shot causing this much pain. Sigh. Super duper bummed today. Oh, and getting dressed today was one of the funnest experiences I've had in a long time (insert sarcasm).

oh gosh!
I'm so sorry to hear.

4 full months of no running? That is tough. In the end though, it'll be much better if it's "only" 4 months and nothing longer. I'm sorry :(
