So I decided not to run tonight. My Achilles is really bothering me - it even hurts to touch it - and I would rather not risk hurting it any more than it already is.
However, I am finding that keeping it moving keeps it feeling good. So I did go for a nice brisk 30 minute walk.
This time of year, when I get outside and take a few minutes to really see what is out there, I am reminded of what a beautiful place I live in. 30 minutes took me past one lake, once river, through some beautiful woods and a gorgeous park. Everything was quiet and still (aside from the woman who felt the need to discuss her dog's BMs and their frequency). Even the black flies and mosquitoes stayed away.
I am truly blessed.
