Well…..not much exercise was completed in July. I blame it on endoftermitis. We were still expecting the big “O”, but they didn’t come. So we were really working up to the wire, full on, 100%. Added to that was the fact that I was leaving that job and an awful lot of extra things needed doing. Stress levels were super high and not much exercise or even physio was completed.
This slacking off lark has meant that my nice firm muscles have degenerated to jelly. So last week I restarted my physio and went out for walks every day, building up to 6 miles a day by Friday. Hmmmm. Good, apart from the fact that every day I was walking I was experiencing pain in my foot. I never have this, so tried to ignore it and didn’t think much of it.
We went away to friends for the weekend, didn’t think much about it then, but when back on Monday and going out for said walk, it was like having marbles in between my foot bones on the base of my foot. It’s continued to get worse, so I’ve jacked in the walking and in between holiday stuff am RICEING – well apart from the compression part. That is helping, but I had this before…..
A few years ago, I did a jumping challenge with my class (barefoot – hence the injury – you were meant to wear trainers…..I didn’t have them with me and thought I’d be ok……) I did pretty well against my fit Y6 boys, but then a few hours later, A.G.O.N.Y. I spent most of the Easter hols that year with my foot up, which did cure it, but trashed my holiday.
Hmmmm. This getting old lark ain’t much fun! I have absolutely NO idea how I’ve done this, but am seeing the physio tomorrow, so hopefully she can advise!
