I took a potent pain pill and slept, making up for the 2-hours' -sleep night in the shelter. I don't hurt all over anymore but my feet are still sore. Blisters are better (I did manage to drain them last night) but limping on my left foot still.

Steve and I went to Wal-Mart (I'm already in the mode where I'm amazed how fast you get somewhere in a car.) I did one of those computerized Dr. Scholl's foot-analysis things. The corrective inserts cost $49.95. I'm using them but have not noticed any immediate relief. If they don't change my life they're guaranteed, and I actually saved the receipt.

I think I need to remember I'm not 25 years old and can't just throw on a 25# pack and start hiking 10 miles a day including crazy rock climbs.
