Status Check

No running for about 4 weeks at this point.  I have been faithfully doing my Doc recommended stretches every morning.  I have also been massaging and icing my achilles tendon and heel spur almost every night.  I have been walking wearing running or hiking shoes for each and every walk I have taken and most are only a mile, but I do have one 4.5 mile WALK under my belt recently.

Result?  I feel fine.  The heel pain is gone, no issues when I get out of bed in the mornings. My bruised cuboid bone is still a little tender, but no pain in the metacarpal areas, which is great.  My next appointment is on the 24th, so we'll see what she has to say then.

So why am I so anxious to start running again?  Because I want to prove that I can.  It's that simple.
