Healing…Heeling?

ex comebackAs I mentioned in my previous post, I was injured from doing the double unders on Friday. I didn’t go into too much detail but I was really injured. I couldn’t walk on my right foot on Friday night without shooting pain from my heel and I was kind of worried. I gave the leg the cold/warm bath and it worked a little but it wasn’t enough.

Saturday was worse. I was able to put on my thick running shoes but I was still limping. Then I went home and tried to keep off of, which just made it stiff. It was still hard to walk on when I went to bed. At this point I was starting to freak out a bit.

Sunday I decided I was going to walk around every 30 minutes and I got a heater for my foot. Sunday was better, but I was still limping. Was I broken? Did I severely injure myself? I was trying to be positive but I was still very nervous.

Monday I wasn’t limping as much. I felt like there might be light at the end of the tunnel. I continued to ice and heat the foot. I continued to walk on it. It still hurt but by the evening I was limping a lot less. I felt that at about 7pm my heel took a turn for the better.

Tuesday and today it has felt even better. I had a massage last night and my therapist worked on the tissue on my heel. He said it was inflamed but afterwards my foot feltΒ so much better! Especially today. Today I could walk without a limp and by the end of the day I barely felt anything with my heel. PHEW!

Tomorrow I have an appointment with a Chiropractor who specializes in CrossFit athletes. I hope to work more on my body, as I have my Achilles issues on my left side and now something going on with my right side.

Since Friday I have not worked out. It has been a little insane going through that. As soon as I started to feel my heel mend the first words out of my mouth were “Maybe I can workout Friday…” much to the chagrin of Robert. In his exact words he said “You were told to not workout this week. You workout, I divorce you! Listen to your doctor!!”. He was kidding about the divorce {I hope!} but I have agreed. I am not the most patient person, but I want to be at my best, so I am not pushing this. I will just hang tight, see the experts and maybe I need orthotic inserts for my shoes. I will do it all. New runners, new inserts for my shoes. I just want to make sure I never hurt my feet again.

Ahhhhh life lessons!! I understand why you exist but grrrr! I hope 14.2’s first movement is something I can do so I get one point. Ha ha, dare to dream, right?
