Does this officially make me a jock?

Thursday, February 21, 2008

I have a sports injury. I kind of overtrained (albeit in the wrong shoes). I went to a sports medicine clinic. My prescription is to wear running shoes with metatarsal pad inserts, and ease back on the distance walking for a bit. (And ice and elevate and all that stuff.)

I find it kind of funny, this 50-something still-kinda-chubby-but-very-mu
scular woman I've become, wearing running shoes all day and clothes to coordinate (because I refuse to wear a dress to work with running shoes) - I walk around school and teachers comment "Oh you must be working out" since I look so sporty. Nope, just delivering papers to someone, or asking a question, or something of that nature.


Metatarsalgia. Sounds like a metaphysical injury. Nostalgia for what could be but isn't. Metatarsalgia.
