NO GYM ...this week!!

Monday, April 15, 2013

Hey yall...

Unfortunately, I have a slight injury. I injured my heel when I first started back working out. I was running on the treadmill and it just was not good to do at that time. My heel has been hurting on and off since January. Now, the pain is getting worse and more frequent. When I wake up in the middle of the night or in the morning, I am tip toeing because it hurts so bad. I hope it is not a heel spur or that I have torn something. I am going to do my best to stay off my feet this week and give my heel a break. I bought a heel cup and some inserts for my sneakers. I am also going to by a heel support online. I hate injuries...they suck! :(

I am not going to stop working out all together, but all of my workouts will be at home this week. I will post each work out that I complete. Each will consist of not putting weight on my heel. I am excited for this challenge to find new ways to strength train and do cardio!!

    I like AUNTWILLIE's suggestion. And it may be that you have a so-called "heel spur," which isn't always a calcification on the heel bone but rather a result of the stretched tendon between the ball of the foot and the heel. It's so painful - I feel for you. See if it helps to roll a can or bottle back and forth under your bare foot while you're watching TV, say, or on the computer. That might give you a little temporary relief. But seeing your doctor about it is the best idea... I think I've had the same thing, and a podiatrist treated me by prescribing a couple exercises (including that can/bottle one I just mentioned), anti-inflammatories, and by and large, rest. It takes a while to heal this, if you have the same thing I heart goes out to you! emoticon

    Think maybe you should have it looked at? It might mean missing fewer workouts in the long run..... Just a thought. emoticon
