Today I discovered a new twist on the idea that “fun” equals “pain”.
Today’s fun – a two mile walk with two spurts of running added in because I felt too good to run just once.
While this was a major accomplishment for me, the feelings of joy diminished greatly a few hours later when to my agony, my right foot unceremoniously cramped.
Due to the morning’s joyful running, I am now denied another joy – walking barefoot around my house. While massage, and later ice, offered relief to my poor foot, only the wearing of shoes provides for limp free walking.
When I was young and much healthier than today, I would have bemoaned such an annoying injury. Today I have learned to celebrate my “battle wound” with ice cream and a good ole’ sappy movie.
