Posting my Progress

On Easter Day 2011, I ran barefoot for a few minutes within my home.
That was a wonderful experience I’ve been dreaming of doing again for 3 1/2 years.
But now I’m having another relapse, and am worse off than before, so maybe I overdid it. Hoping my swelling and pain will go down enough so I can walk with my cane again.
Still, I treasure that experience, even though it cost me a relapse. But next time I won’t throw caution to the winds, or feel pressured to overdo in order to meet anyone else’s expectations. I’ll just use common sense.
Actually, I wasn’t doing all that much running anyway before GBS; and after all, I’m 57 years old. (hah!)

(Oh discretion, thou art the better part of valour…)
