Hi Folks, So, today, I get up; few creaks and a bit of pain. Cycle to a dog-walk I have. Walk dog for 45 minutes. A bit of pain in some of my foot, but no pain at all in the bit of my toe which apparently has functional hallux limitus. Nothing. And this was walking in bare-soled trainers, no orthotics, along a pavement. The dog himself is quite a boy, too; hefty and strong, if lovely. As I walked, I just thought, 'okay, accept things are okay. Accept it.' And I started thinking of that lovely, healing mantra - 'I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you,' over and over, partly 'cause it relaxes me and partly 'cause I don't want to start obsessing about why it doesn't hurt; I think that's part of the battle - trying to accept it going away when it does. Anyway, so yes, that's me on Day 9. Wow.
