Well, the dull ache I've had in my foot since November turned into a "hot poker" stabbing me in the foot sort of pain two weeks ago. Since then, I wisely stopped running and made an appointment to see a podiatrist. Some would argue it would have been wiser to stop running BEFORE the "hot poker" incident but there's no sense dwelling on past mistakes (of which I've made many). Unfortunately, the foot still hurts and my appointment is two weeks away. That means I'm sitting out the month of January and who knows how much longer after my doctor's visit. And my SI joint and/or lower back is messed up again.
Just shoot me.
