What's the Lesson This Time?

I started having heel pain in my right foot on Sunday but didn't really pay attention to it until yesterday.  Now I think I may have done something to my Achilles tendon.  It may have happened during my heavy sprint workout on Saturday.  And driving for five hours on Sunday and running five miles Monday morning probably didn't help it.  So I may need to take a break from running, just as I was gearing up for my next marathon.  Ugh.

Okay, God, what's the lesson in this for me?  How do you want to grow me next?  Help me to be humble enough to trust that you know a little more than I do about the big picture.  But please be patient with me, I tend to be a little slow in this department.

  1. OK, Karl, I don't mean to be your mama here, but maybe you should see a doc? I'm no runner (I barely leave the couch, let's be honest), but I had some foot issues, finally caved and went to see a podiatrist. Dude gave me a couple of simple tips and bam! 1,000 times better. I will shut up now.
