Metatarsal inflammation returns

Posted by Jeanne Barrett on April 2, 2011 in Uncategorized

During recent morning hill runs, I have begun to notice inflammation pain signals in my left foot again, after many months of reprieve from same.  Past experience of this indicates a disruption in my overall elastic response to the ground, and a potential challenge with increased demand in activity.  It is of interest that foot pain diminishes while I am teaching (when my use of self is at its hopeful best), but increases with vigorous walking or running.  Thus, I will sadly hold off on morning runs until I can see my Osteopathic physician for assistance in structural integrity.

The ongoing consequences of patella fracture thus continue.  The challenge for me is to not push beyond current limits of self (end-gain), to use my self with dynamic non-interference (attend to the whole picture rather than parts), and to allow time, once again, so that I can explore desired activities with good use and an elastic response.  Do I like having to take time again?  No, not in the least!  But taking time is clearly necessary.  More lessons to be learned!
