Cardio Break

Monday, January 14, 2013

So as it turns out I need a break from cardio. Apparently my new winter boots have rubbed against my skin to the point of giving me a blister. At first i was doing okay, pushing past it but after my workout on the treadmill the this morning my left foot was hurting. Taking off my sock i realized just how bad it'd gotten. The skin came off it apparently -owww!- bad enough in itself but now it's also infected.

As a result my left heel is throbbing and it reallyyyyy hurts to walk. I' m not sure if this blister is a result of my boot rubbing against my foot or if my body is telling me I'm doing too much. Or a combination of both.

Sooo...until my foot heals I won't be doing any cardio but I will keep up with my strength training and stretching.

    Given how much you've been burning, it wouldn't be surprising if you're doing a bit too much. I'm a lot like you... I'm prone to overtraining, because I really enjoy the activity; it takes you down though, so it can bite you in the butt.

Here's to a quick recovery... I'd suggest different socks. You can probably get some good recommendations in the fitness forum; usually blisters come from the wrong socks, or poorly fitting shoes. (Or both.)
