Ok, so here is my thirty second post.
One of my goals, you know the running the 5K goal? So I had big plans to run - ok mostly walk - five kilometers this morning, to see what it feels like to go that far.
Then yesterday afternoon I started getting this pain on the top of my right foot. By supper time it was so bad I was limping. By bedtime, my foot was swelled up like a watermelon, warm and red, and I could not walk on it at all. I said, oh, crap. The only thing I could think of that it was was gout. But that is caused by eating rich foods and meats and stuff like that. I never eat beef, chicken a couple times a week, no organ meats, I don't know. I just don't eat anything that would cause gout.
So I popped some ibuprofen and crawled in bed with an ice pack.
This morning, the swelling was gone, there was only little redness and pain over that one bone. I took some more ibuprofen and pouted most of the day. There goes that one goal I thought I could master - no, I knew I could never run three miles, but I could run the first mile and force myself to run the last one and do a mean walk the middle mile.
Tonight I sucked it up and ran a mile, whether it was good for my foot or not. No pain right now. And this took four minutes to type. I really am not very fast at anything.
