My New Companions

So I have 2 new companions, crutches. And they are no fun.
While I was training for my marathon I developed a wart on the ball of my right foot. It has been extremely painful for the last several months. So finally on Monday I went to the podiatrist and he told me that I had 2 options. He could use an acid or cut it out. When he looked at it, he determined that it would be best to cut it out. He numbed my foot and did the "procedure." What is left is a massive crater in my foot, it looks like something that you would find on the moon. Plus, it hurts every time I take a step. I started trying to walk on the side of my foot, then it caused pain in my shin. So I started trying to walk on my heel, but that was really weird and uncomfortable. So now I am on crutches. I feel like a dork when I use them, especially as I walked into the restaurant tonight and I slipped and almost busted it. So I am in some pain and I have not been able to work out for 3 days now and I am tired of my foot hurting.

Bummer - all around. Amazing that such a little thing can be such a pain. Praying for you, my Friend!

That stinks! I hate crutches! At least it shouldn't be too much longer and you'll be as good as new :-)

P.S. I had a thought - you could string them with Christmas lights and hang an ornament or two!

in case you don't read my comment on my blog:

LSLW - I do Jillian's workouts "on demand" through cable. I have not bought a workout video in ages. I get bored really easily doing the same workout over and over again.

I LOVE variety : )
