Just when I thought I was ready to endure anything, God is totally putting me to the test.
Two weeks ago I was sprinting at crossfit and heard a "pop" in the bottom of my foot, followed by the inability to walk without pain.
The next day I went to see an orthopedist (so thankful for amazing health insurance) and was diagnosed with a tear of my plantar fascia. It's the muscle on the bottom of your foot that runs across the arch, from your heel to the ball of your foot.
So I had a beautiful boot for two weeks, and now I'm back to limping in whatever shoes I choose.
The good news is, I've still been working out. My trainers came up with a program for me that includes swimming and a whole bunch of other stuff. So I'm totally staying active.
My question is, have you ever run a half marathon six weeks after an injury that keeps you from doing any impact on your foot?
Because I'm going to.
I'll let you know how it goes.
