Upon waking up this morning I was delighted to find out I didn’t do any more harm to my foot. I didn’t think it should as badminton compared to running is a lot less pounding on your feet. I’d say this morning my foot was better than it was after my walk Monday evening and the same or slightly better than before badminton. After working all day it actually feel better than this morning. I don’t know if that has anything to do with me continually stretching and contorting my foot while driving or not. The more I did it the better it felt both at rest and walking.
Today as usual is a planned rest day so I’m obviously staying with that and relaxing tonight. Tomorrow is a normal 4 mile run but I’m skipping it now. I’m thinking badminton again would be a better option so I may try to get out of poker tomorrow night so I can go to badminton instead. I mean I burn just as many calories so why not.
I’ve been trying to figure out why my foot started bugging me and I’m thinking it’s related to my heel hurting a few weeks ago. In trying to keep the heel from flaring up again I’m thinking maybe I’ve been landing too much on the ball of my foot instead of more on the heel. Happens a lot when you get injured you compensate for it and the compensating ends up causing problems! So when I do get back to running on the weekend I’m going to try to keep that in mind.
To those of you celebrating St.Patrick’s Day…remember you have to work in the morning 🙂
