But I've discovered a couple things about my hip injury: it's not the new shoes, because every pair of shoes I've tried as I've walked some each day made no difference: still pain when I try to walk too fast, with what feels like an ice pick stabbing into my right butt cheek. A squeal of pain and then I slow down. But every morning when I first start my day I'm convinced it's completely healed (it's not). Time will tell but you know how impatient I am. An impatient patient.

If I'm good and don't push too much, I should be able to make next week's hike! For the moment, I am happy to be slowly improving.
