The foot was feeling much better until I went back to the doctor today. He finds a new way to inflict pain on my foot every time. Yesterday I was feeling so good, that I walked the mile and a half to my car instead of riding the shuttle. Today, I’m back to being gimpy. The good news is the doctor says that I don’t have to come back unless it really starts hurting. No more follow ups! That means this was the last time for him to scrape and dig around inside the wounds on the bottom of my foot (yes, it’s as painful as it sounds). I have big plans for when this gimpy foot of mine heals (besides the yoga teacher training thing). My friend Craig is running in a half marathon in September (I know, long way off) and since we’ve always talked about training for marathons and actually running in one, I thought I’d train for it too. A half marathon is a good start.
Best of all, I plan on riding my new bicycle. Chris paid our friend Brian to rebuild an old Schwinn for me. I’m in love with my new bike. Its perfection right down to the Om symbol on the side. I just need a bell and a basket and maybe a helmet and I’m off! You know what would be great? It would be great if we had bike lanes or even decent sidewalks. I want to ride my bicycle. I want to ride my bike.
