Stupid heel injury
Thursday, October 04, 2012
Little rant and complaining here, you probably want to stop reading now.
I don't even know what I did. Its not my achilies tendon that hurts, but a point right on my heel that is just enough to be a nuisance whenever I'm walking. Just enough to notice it. If I pull on the top of my foot (seated, like to stretch the hamstrings) it explodes in pain. I tried to do a calf exercises in the weight room before I thought I'd injured it, and once the weight was all the way back it just killed.
That being said, those are the only two things that hurt it. I can squat and deadlift with no troubles. It hasn't bothered me once in jiu jitsu, except for the one opening stretch. Taking time off of lifting and rolling won't help it heal I don't think.
Seems the only thing this is stopping is me from running. I haven't tried yet, but I don't want this to last longer. I'd love to be able to go on a 6+ mile run Saturday afternoons to offset the damage from the eating out I almost feel obligated to do to have a social life. Never thought I'd be missing running of all things.
