Today was the day of reckoning for the foot.
I was thinking the worst: plantar fasciitis, or enslavement to orthotics, or never running again. Because the pain, it has been pretty darn painful.
Fortunately it is simply a strain – which happens to be pushing on a nerve, hence the painful pain. All I need to do is keep it strapped for two weeks, take ibuprofen and roll a bottle under my foot … and no running – but only for two weeks.
I practically danced from the office!
I’m completely relieved and delighted, but it will be a long, long two weeks.
