It’s one set back after another, just like in nature

Foot pain diagram
No pain from any joints. Pain is one digit up, but between the middle toes.

 

It’s one set back after another, just like in nature. Study nature long enough and you learn a brutal truth. Nature is survival of the fittest. Everything else gets eaten in due time.

The newest foot pain is driving him crazy because he knows exactly where it’s located, but there are no visible signs on the skin’s surface for him or his Podiatrist to see, and take action on.

Semi-scary.

And yet he knows this too shall pass.

But why did it have to happen now?

What is your health mantra?

(photo: Yesterday’s five miler included an 800-meter fast pace. Two of those back to back and you have a six-minte mile.)

What is your health mantra?

Stay healthy, have fun.

Simple? Sure.

Easy? Um, that would be a “no”.

So easy to push ourselves before we are ready. This is how we get injured.

Injuries provide a great excuse to quit.

How Much Is Enough?

We may never know why we have certain body aches and pains

Humans who don’t exercise are like trapped animals

 

We may never know why we have certain body aches and pains.

We may get them because we exercise too often or too hard.

We may get them because we don’t exercise at all.

And so it goes.

Decisions, decisions.

Handle these things and move forward

Unplanned Podiatrist visit made for late arrival to client (graphic artist) meeting – life is challenging, learn to recognize and control the controllables

 

Yesterday’s run lasted 400 meters. Stopped, walked back home.

Made it to the podiatrist when they opened at 8am.

A quick, simple removal of a tiny cyst and good to go again.

Something so tiny.

So crippling.

Had been icing the foot for over a week, thinking it was a bruise on the ball of the foot.

Live and learn. Recover as quickly as possible.

It will happen again.

Handle it and move forward.

What keeps us going when the most unexpected setback taunts us yet again?

“To 55″… yes, age is also a risk factor for foot (or any) injuries

 

It’s probably achilles tendonitis.

Probably stimulated from wearing different orthotics for a week. And possibly from not changing out running shoes soon enough.

Just enough difference to put strain where there normally isn’t.

What keeps us going when the most unexpected setback taunts us yet again?
