No riding for me. What should I do?

On Sunday, September 1st I was at Wheeling Skatepark, my favorite concrete park. I was having a blast and my friend, Chaz was pumping me up because that day was the day I was going to fly out of the bowl for the first time. I had flown out before on small spots at other places, but the most shallow part at Wheeling is probably 6 feet high. (Correct me if I'm wrong, Max) I rolled in and started cruising around. I pumped around for about five minutes and then I figured I'd fly out and give someone else a chance. I pedaled as fast and I could, did everything correctly I just started leaning to the side while I leaned forward. I leaned to the side so much I was going to fall over, so naturally, I put my foot down. As soon as I hit the ground, my ankle immediately rolled and I slammed the side of my foot off of the concrete. It hurt. It hurt really bad, but I had just gotten to the park and I didn't really think much of it. After 5 minutes of riding I sat down , had a drink of Dr. Pepper and I decided to take my shoe off. My foot was so swollen that I could barely get it back on! I figured it wasn't anything too bad so I finally got my shoe on and I continued riding, I rode for two more hours and then I left. On my way home, the pain increased. I went home and fell asleep. The next day I woke up not able to apply all of my weight on it but it wasn't terrible. It didn't seem broken so I figured I needed to suck it up. Tuesday, I went to school and walked around on it THE WHOLE DAY. I got home and it was swelled up even more than it was on Sunday. So I finally went and saw a doctor and he told me there is a hair line fracture in a growth plate in my foot and I need to see a specialist. He put me in a half cast, (They put the back of a cast on the bottom/back of my foot and wrap it all up in a really thick, ace bandage-looking stuff) gave me crutches, and sent me home. He told me not to walk on it until I see a specialist and then to follow his orders. I don't know when my appointment with a specialist is yet, so I'm still in this terrible half cast. So I can't ride for a while, what should I do to pass the time? I will update you guys when my appointment is and what the doc says when I find out!

I have an iPod and a windows phone. I plan on sitting around on Netflix, TheComeUp, and Vital of course. But I don't wanna get out of shape. That's the problem.

Stocksy, I think max is rubbing off on you. That was a long post.

Learn how to take everything on you bike apart and back together if you don't already know how. Get your bike into perfect condition. So it will be ready to ride when you are.

Maybe! xD I tried to keep it short and sweet but there were so many details that seemed important. I apologize. And I sort of know how to. I mean I know how to I've just never actually took it completely apart.

Hey... haha i do make long posts, but i dont like to water things down. And idk about 6 feet, i know at one part it is 6, but most of the shallow is about 4-5, but i like to fly out on the taller bit, so if you went for what i do, you did. haha i think you shouldnt go to skateparks without me man! I woulda warned you what not to do!! Im surprised that happened honestly, just because of that, i think you need to invest in a pair of nikes because they arent so hard on your feet like vans. And do what i do when im not supposed to ride, i go ride anyways.

That's true man! I'm trying to stay positive and have fun with the crutches. I've been doing 3s around my school! I posted a mini edit on Instagram yesterday if you wanna see it, my username is in my signature. But I race people down the halls and everything! It's pretty fun. It comes no where close to how much fun and happiness I get from riding, but it puts a smile on peoples faces and they laugh about it!

Get a wheel chair! Then you can have fun riding while staying off your feet.
