Before Christmas I decided, after seeing a beach photograph of my white and not especially smooth thighs, to start running again.
This went well for a couple of weeks.
Then it didn’t.
While running across a pedestrian crossing at 6.45 am, a car appeared rather suddenly to be bearing down on me. I changed direction. My Achilles tendon didn’t.
Since then I have been doing some rehabilitation – walking up & down in salt water, calf raises Vrksasana and other one legged balances on the PowerPlate at Tiaki Pilates, running for the train in high heels …
There is a kind of funny gristly lumpy protrusion on the back of my left ankle. I am convinced that it is there forever now.
It ain’t pretty and when I touch it I feel a bit like spewing.
However, one thing I have discovered about the bump is this – I can suddenly wear slingbacks again without the slingbacky bit sliding off over my heel.
Hooray for bumpy protrusions.
