I just broke my ankle from volleyball on Monday (someone landed on my foot)....Now, i'm out from playing any volleyball for a few months (I was in 3 leagues) and from working-out..But I am still diligent with what I eat and I am still using my food journal daily..There is no whining or sulking about my injury, I just have to stay positive, do what the doctors want me to do so I can heal as quickly as I can, begin physio and gradually get back into volleyball. Staying positive is keeping me sane!

If you put elastic laces in your running shoes, you shoes will adjust automatically to your feet while running. It lowers the chance of foot injury and is much more comfortable., particularly on long runs. You can get elastic laces at medical supply stores.
So I have a foot injury, but I didn't want to slow down on the cardio and I hate a treadmill. I did some research and found three different exercises to put together and my heart rate goes up!! It does the job and the best part is, no treadmill!!224
The three exercises I do: 1. "One Arm Snatches" 2. Lunges 3. Guerrilla Push-ups
I do about 10-15 reps for each exercise and three sets of each, if I can last that long!!
If you need a description for the exercises you can you tube them or hit me up at email@example.com
Usually within two or three weeks of faithfully exercising, I have to stop and rest some sort of injury - a tweaked knee, a foot I can't put weight on - something that keeps me from exercising. Since December, I have been stretching at the end of EVERY workout session, so far, I am injury free. I am sore and feeling muscles and stuff, but I have not strand anything to the point that I can not work out. I never realized how important stretching is to your total workout.
