Sometimes, well most of the time it truly is the little things, the little victories that bring joy. Last night it was a hike.
I have been dealing with plantar fasciitis (BIG heel pain!) for the past 7 months or so, and while I am not ever overly active in the winter months, I have missed going on wogs (slow walk/jogs!) on the clear days. Last night was such a beatiful evening I decide it was time to try a hike. We went to one of our favorite nearby trails that is only about 2 1/2 miles long. See the view--the beautiful snow capped mountains in the distance?
I not only survived, but my foot is no more sore this morning than it is on a normal day. It is still not 100%, but so much better and now that I know it can handle hiking, I am happy! i am still not sure my foot is ready to heavy the hard pavement, but that is okay, hiking and biking are my activity of choice in the summer.
Tune in tonight at 6 PM Mountain time for a fun link party.
