An “elder” healing rate!

What a pain in the butt. Or – in this case – pain in the toes.

Most of my life, enjoying outdoor sports, recreation, activities in general outdoors…if I injured a foot, bent a toe or two, everything generally healed up and any pain vanished within a few days. Especially, if we’re talking about comparatively superficial injuries. Nothing involving bones or tendons.

Not anymore, man!

After 4 or 5 days resting up the toes on my left foot – injured via my lifetime walking style which means “press on regardless” – I headed out, this morning, and realized almost immediately that I wasn’t sufficiently healed to do laps…or even “a lap”. Turning around and headed back and here I am – whining about it.
