Hiking 500 Miles in 2017 – Week 19

I’ve had pain in my right foot for the last couple of months.  I’ve done my best to ignore the pain because I already had trips to Havasu Falls and Moab planned and paid for.  Now that both of those trips are over I can no longer ignore the pain… mostly because it’s gotten much worse with all the hiking those trips required and I’m now walking with a bit of a limp.  So instead of hiking this week, I took myself to the doctor.  She doesn’t think it’s broke (whew) but I went for x-rays anyway, still waiting for results.  She thought possibly plantar fasciitis, but the pain is presenting backward.  Next step will probably be an MRI.  So last week I took a break from the trails.
