Disappointment July 31 2012

Two weeks ago I posted about how much I was looking forward to playing floor hockey. Unfortunately all I got to play was one game.

Apparently I underestimated how much harder gym floors were than grass soccer fields. Let me tell you, they’re really hard. Evidently, they’re too hard for my foot that’s still recovering from plantar fasciitis. My foot hurt a little that night, but not a whole lot more than after a soccer game. The next morning however was a different story. I could hardly walk when I first got out of bed.

So I made the tough decision to not play the rest of the season. I hate that I had to give it up, but I want my foot to heal completely, not get worse.

This is the second thing that I was really looking forward to doing that I’ve had to cancel. Because I couldn’t run I ended up giving my spot in the Mud Hero race to a friend. I was pretty bummed out about that, and now I’m doubly bummed out cause the next month won’t involve any floor hockey like I thought it would.

I’m very ready for my body to be back to normal. I want to be able to do the things that I want to do. I guess one good thing that’s come out of this is that I’ll appreciate the way my body works once it’s completely healed.
