Mortified Foot 2


I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

My right foot has been hurting for a while now. I didn’t want to get it checked because that might lead to having to stay off of it. And that could result in a choice to stop exercising in general. That would lead to worse health issues. And so on.

Yesterday, at Nana’s church, I began to notice that my foot wasn’t just hurting, it was also swollen. My left foot had no swelling, so I had a feeling this was related to the pain. When we got home, I noticed that the swelling was over the painful spots. I decided then that an almost 2 mile walk might do more harm than good.

Actually, the way I was increasing my distance123 may have caused this injury. I may have been doing too much too fast. I went from no walking a few weeks ago to almost two miles. That’s a lot of mileage in a little time period. So maybe I should slow my distance increases.

Anyway, I have an appointment for tomorrow morning to find out what is going on with my foot.

  2. and my weight 

  3. and my Vitamin D deficiency

    I hope it’s nothing serious, and that the treatment is quick and relatively non-invasive! Around this time three years ago I had a stress fracture on my right foot, and I was in a walking boot for four months. Blergh. I wouldn’t wish that inconvenience (and hip/leg pain) on many people!
