Great hike: A bruised heel, plantar fasciitis, and a swollen leg

May 19, 2010

Just a quick note to say that I did some serious damage to my right leg and foot during a hike last week, so I haven't had much to post here lately. While trying out some different shoes, I managed to bruise my heel and cause my plantar fasciitis problem to flare up, while the twisting and turning of walking on a gravel trail also caused my surgically-repaired shin to swell up. I hope to be okay in a few days, and then I won't do that again, lol.

P.S. -- Other than these problems, the trail was beautiful, as usual.
