This past week has seen very little working out, quite a lot of rest, and quite a lot of celebration and retreat. While my foot is not perfect, I’ll be a bit confused if I won’t be able to resume my running after I meet the doctor this week.
However, I am very thankful for the experiences that have led me away from my training momentarily. First off, we bought a car–a 2014 Ford Focus–and I love every bit about how it drives. Second, our family friends–really, family to Lucine–celebrated a daughter’s wedding. It was one of the best weddings I’ve been at in a couple years. Third, I attended the InterVarsity Northeast Faculty Conference at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, RI. This meeting was a great blessing and encouragement to my soul. So while I miss the rhythm of dropping my kids off, training, then working, I have been greatly blessed by the events that have interrupted my normal schedule.
The rest, however, has been great for my foot. It doesn’t hurt as much anymore, even though I can still “feel” it, if that makes any sense. It is a bit stiff, even if it doesn’t hurt when I wake up in the morning. I’ve also been careful to be somewhat gentle with it. When I begin training, I won’t be treating it gently–except when I’m not running.
No additional updates. I’ll check back in after I see the doc this week!
