Making the most of every day…

Last Mon­day I went for a run (who am I kid­ding? More like a slow jog) I hadn’t been in a few weeks so I was quite pleased to be feel­ing pretty good. Just over a mile in it all changed. I stepped squarely on a rock which seemed to pen­e­trate the bot­tom of my shoe as my weight came down on it. I felt a pop, thought I heard it as well, and I knew it wasn’t good. I was on the cross coun­try course, back in the woods about three quar­ters of a mile. I did have my phone with me, but the real­ity of it was the best option was sim­ply to walk to my car. So I began to hob­ble on out.
On the way I thought of many things, but mostly I kept think­ing about how it is impor­tant to make the most of each day that we are liv­ing our lives. I had a lit­tle regret over the fact that I had missed a cou­ple weeks of work­ing out since I knew I would be way­laid for a while with this new injury. I thought about how easy it is to take basic func­tions for granted.
I went to the ER that night and they con­firmed what I already knew. At the ortho­pod I was issued a boot and told par­tial weight bear­ing. That changes every­thing, from the big things-not going to watch my daugh­ters cross coun­try meet– to the small things– decid­ing whether or not to buy more cof­fee creamer see­ing as it is at the very back of the store.
It’s been almost a week and I am doing okay. Very glad to be deal­ing with a rel­a­tively minor issue com­par­a­tively. And find­ing the good as well. As soon as I can I’ll be back out there again.
