The risk factors are identical

The disabling pain in the heel is back. I have no way of knowing if it was from the four hour hike that we took on Saturday or if it is just another minor episode in the eventual disintegration of my body. The hike was a bit strenuous - 1900 foot elevation differential. But still, that was on Saturday and my heel just started hurting again yesterday. It seems that the time that it takes for pain like that to re-emerge should be a little bit sooner, but what do I know... I expect everything to appear too quickly and with too much of it to manage or enjoy, otherwise I am left feeling less than overwhelmed. 

I treat pain like love, when it sneaks up on me I become suspicious.
