So I finally gave into the pain in my foot. The pain that has been a constant nag since I finished my Marathon almost 11 months ago. Wow — has it really been THAT long?? Yea, it has. So I finally dragged myself to see the Foot Doctor this week.
It’s Official. I have an inflamed Plantar Fasciitis which is a band of tendons that runs from the arch of my right foot, to the heel area. It’s swollen from the impact of running on it, and it needs rest. The Doctor was great. He set me up with an x-ray, a cortisone shot, a night brace, a day strap, and custom orthotics (they arrive next week).
But here comes the bad news…….the L.E.M.O.N.S. so to speak —-> I have to rest it for 2 months. No running.
I have a Princess Half Marathon I’m supposed to be training for, and a princess-in-training (my daughter Erin)…who’s counting on me to run it with her. On Her 17th Birthday!!! No pressure , MOM!
Well — like our strong, determined, loving Mom’s have taught us — When Life Gives you Lemons……It’s TIme To Make Some Kick@ss Lemonade! Tune in tomorrow, for the recipe!
Ciao for now…..Diane
