6 weeks in a boot.

Good news is the tear in my posterior tibial tendon should heal on its own, if it is given the chance.  So, the doctor gave me a big boot, and told me to wear it whenever I'm walking/standing for 6 weeks.  So, it could be worse, but it's going to make moving heavy furniture into the moving truck a bit awkward.  I guess if I've been on it for several months since the initial injury, I can probably take the boot off to load the truck, and accept a few more days of boot use if need be.  I can still swim, run in the pool, and bike, so all is not lost.  In the meantime, I've got 3 days to finish packing up my house, so no time to sit around and mope that I can't go and do one last Rock Creek Park loop.
