Thanks man. Seriously, it seems like you should scale things back. I assume you make time for a job in there somewhere, too? I think I saw something about a wife in there as well. I know when something is new and fun it's easy to want to do it ALL THE TIME, but that will really be counterproductive ultimately, and injury is one way this can manifest itself.
During the work week, I never do successive training days. The mental and physical load of training plus work, wife kid and life in general can be a lot to recover from when all combined. Especially for sprinting, it's quality, not quantity. Try to eliminate "junk miles" from your training. Either be REALLY training, or doing recovery. Eliminate "kinda hard" stuff, it won't make you faster. And there will be less wear and tear on your body and fewer injuries.
So for now, I'd take your doctors advice. Don't do anything for a week, and reset the clock.
