    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    stupid 5th metatarsil

    broke my fucking foot sparring last night. My first san shou match is in 1 month. I see the orthopedic docs this week. I had my cheek cut in my first round, I bled like a stuck pig.

    I was hit by a haymaker right in the head, and while I was trying to back up/slip the punch I somehow landed on the side of my foot and broke the bone.

    As soon as I can get to a windows box, I'll have some cool x-rays. the hospital gave me a CD as I was leaving. Very clean break at least.....

    I'm a little dejected. I'll be regulated to a cornerman for this tournament.

    Look at it this way...you'll get to watch the local competitors very carefully and without any of that pesky adrenaline interfering with your evaluation of their strengths, weaknesses and tactics.

    Take notes.

    Aw ****!!! Sorry to hear that dude. I remember you told me you were pretty excited about the tourney. At least you'll get a chance to watch and take notes as BHB said... not that there is any consolation.

    Here is my concolation: you broke your foot in 'live' competititon, while I broke mine in light contact sparring (shin blocked). Your injury is like a badge of pride.

    So it turns out that where I broke the bone makes this a "Jones Fracture" I'll be going back to the orthopedic doctor for a pre-surgery follow up this week. There will be a screw inserted in my bone to keep it from re-occuring.

    Basically, they told me that it was bound to happen, as I had indications of stress on the bone already, more than likely from increasing my roadwork from 0 miles a week, to roughly 10 miles a week. At my weight, it spelled doom for my feet.

    I can either spend 6 weeks in a cast, 6 weeks in a walking cast, or get the surgery and knock 2-4 weeks off the whole shebang.

    None the less, I won't be doing kung fu this summer.

    Oi, this sucks.
