Well, thank you for asking! Those of you who regularly visit know that I’ve had my fair share of minor ailments, bumps, and bruises lately. We’ve conversed by email and we’ve shared a few laughs along the way. I was reminded to give an update since it’s been a while.

Oops. Guess I just lost track of time!

Well, I’m doing well, I think. Still relying on the K-tape to stabilize the ever annoying Achilles tendon and I continue with the self care although I’m probably due for another trip to the massage therapist. I’ve been walking and moving a lot more which of course, would aggravate the Achilles so I need to better balance my activities.

One thing I did do recently was pick up a new pair of running shoes. I love running shoes but I’ve learned that what I love isn’t always good for me. As it turns out, my runners were too soft to provide me with the support that I need. The heels of my new pair of snazzy runners (bright fun colours and all) are more structured to give me the stability I need. I’m also armed with a new pair of orthotics that make my feet really happy. pic - kids 2015

What a difference the new pair of runners make. Could it be that my favourite pair of runners are the main cause for all my Achilles woes? I have no idea but I’m going to monitor my progress.

The good news is, the pinched nerve in my hand seems to be recovering quite well. The new ergonomic keyboard combined with more frequent breaks has certainly helped to speed up recovery along with some much needed self care.

For the record, I’m not complaining. I am quite aware that there are bigger worries out there in the big wide world. No, the purpose of these update posts aren’t to complain but rather to serve as reminders for all of us to take good care of ourselves. I’m 99.9% sure that I’m a workaholic and thankfully the only things that have come to bother me are a few physical ouches. I’ve taken these bumps as reminders to slow down and NOT always run full steam ahead. pic - bear relaxing

Lesson learned: life might be hurtling forward at supersonic speed but we have to remember to pace ourselves, pick our battles, and know when to just get up and stretch (which is right about NOW).
