Had a follow up with my foot doctor for my heel spur. And the news is ugh. (When he pushed my heel he almost had to peel me of the ceiling!)
I now have a immobilizing boot to wear as often as possible to try to help with the healing of the heel and the tendons. (I neglected to tell the doctor that I am running the Main Street Mile next week and Fair Hill 5k the following but shhh we won’t tell him that, I will be good otherwise)! HA the good news is riding actually is the one thing I CAN do as that stretches the tendons the good way! So I hope with cooler weather coming I will get some rides in. The bad news is that my inlaws are still here so I might miss out on some riding on Saturday with Emma and others that I would have loved to do. Such is life….grumble grumble.
The foot doesn’t bother me unless I have to walk a lot or if I sit for long periods of time. So yeah most of the time! Fair Hill should be fun(albeit agonizing). What I won’t do to hang out with Austen and Emma! It actually feels pretty good today from wearing the boot and taking the prescription so HEAL HEEL!
Spurs You Ride With
I bought the coolest pair of spurs from Amanda. Her oil slick ones? LOVE THEM and they are longer than most of my spurs so they work excellent for prodding Sir Remus along. But the weirdest thing happened. I wore them at Fair Hill in September (first time wearing them in fact). And then put them in my helmet bag with my other spurs, helmet and gloves. And when I went to wear them for Emily’s lesson part of the oil slick is gone. It is still showing on one spur. But one half of the other spur is colored and the other is gold. They still ride great (of course they are spurs no matter the color LOL) but I thought it was odd that almost all the color came off of one. I mean I would expect they both maybe would rub off some but not exactly half the side of it. I may be scratching my head on this for a while..and because I am an idiot I keep looking to see if the color has returned.
The cooler weather has arrived finally, things might start happening now! Amazing how a cool breeze can invigorate you as you stand outside shivering at 6 am with your dogs! Have a great weekend all! Hope it is cool and breezy where you are and lots of horsey plans are in your forecast!!
Some things are moving re saddles, so stay tuned!
