So after a few weeks of foot pain I finally got in to see a podiatrist and he gave me a new shoe. I thought that was rather nice of him. Too bad for me it wasn't a very attractive shoe and doesn't match the shoe on my other foot. It does have velcro though and that is always entertaining.
Aside from the shoe being a gift there wasn't much good news. Yes, I have a stress fracture. I didn't realize my foot was that stressed. If I had known I would have taken it out for a massage or let it have some vacation time. Not knowing my foot wasn't dealing with life very well it has now "cracked" under the pressure.
So, this is a cautionary tale for you. Pay attention to your feet. Give them a break (ha ha, get the pun!) or you too may end up with a new shoe.
