I am in pain!!! This foot issue has gotten a lot worse in the past week and is now really causing some problems with my shin. I set out for a run this morning with my friend Erin and instead of running we did a 4 mile walk. I couldn't even try to run through the pain. My goal is to work through this injury and get back on track as fast as possible.
Per Erin's suggestion, I froze a water bottle and I have been rolling and icing my foot. It seems to help. I also have been stretching it. This week I will set out to find a new chiropractor to see if they can work some magic. My chiropractor that I LOVE is no longer covered by my insurance *crying*. He kept me in tip top shape a few years ago. I hope to find someone that is just as great to get snap me back in line.
On the topic of stretching.....man I need to do more of it. I am stiff and sore. I am not shocked that I am having issues now because I never stretch. I am thinking of doing some Yoga. I have done it in the past but it was not a great class. I want to find a real instructor that really knows what they are doing. I think it will make all the difference.
I am also exploring some things to do for cross training. Spinning is one of them. I am scared to death to try it, but everyone swears that it is fun and truly addictive. Here are my fears:
1. The bikes are too close
2. I won't be able to keep up
3. I am afraid I will fall off the stationary bike.....Yes I am that klutzy
4. What if I puke because of the intensity of the workout
I guess there is a first time for everything, but this workout scares the bejeesus out of me.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
