das boot

 oh wait, that means THE BOAT!!! damn those other languages!
 does it look like it belongs to Darth Vader? 
and too late for  Halloween!!! 
it sure feels like a boat.  a large boat.

so, it turns out that I am SUPERHUMAN!!!  
xtra bones next to the cuboid bones in both feet!
(see the little nubby* by the square-ish bone underneath the 5th metatarsal?)

cool huh?!

*scientific term.

unfortunately, the one on the right has irritated my tendon. 
Doc sez the injury is like a stress fracture, 
he wants me in "the boot" for 4 weeks minimum.
(which btw, is totally awkward & weighs a ton!!!)
he also prescribed an anti-inflam and
I need to use an anti-inflam cream.

ei yi yi!!!

yep, that means no running.  none, nada.  
and no training for DWM, sigh.

luckily for all my friends and co-workers, I can go to cycle class!!!


Elle Bee!!! you have impeccable timing!
I think you're right and that book is right up my alley.
and now I have time to read it!!!  LOL!!!
merci beaucoup!
I l.o.v.e that you only paid a dollar for it!!!

Pens also sent me a great book by Michelle Belanger about Dreamwalking.
