a shot in the tootsy


Didn't get enough sleep last night. Tough getting up and getting to the pool this morning. Plan to be in bed earlier tonight. Warmup & Drills. Then 30 x 50 on 20 seconds. I forgot my watch so I don't know what my times were. I used the lap clock for the rest. I was suffering pretty bad for most of this one. Lots of gasping and bitching during the 20 second recovery. This workout is always a crusher for me because of the amount of repeats but honestly it is one of my favorites too.

Quick CF workout - 50 air squats with a 20 lb weight vest - 1.06

Went to a different foot doctor today. This appointment went better than the last one as I think we were both speaking the same language. Decided on treating this a little more aggressively as the conservative things I have been doing are not cutting it. Although I will continue to do the conservative things too. I got a cortisone shot in my foot. Right now the treatment plan is most likely a series of shots while not running to let the foot recover. We'll see how it goes. If this doesn't work surgery is a possibility. Because of the state my foot is in he thinks it is going to take awhile for it to heal up. Getting the shots didn't hurt but it was really bothering me afterwards. I could barely walk on it. He also taped it up so im not using it which I need to keep on for a few days. I am still doing my sprint tri on sunday. So we'll see how that goes. It would be sooooo nice to be able to run then instead of hobble along but with it only being a few days after one shot I am not going to set my sights too high and just try to look at the big picture. I hope this foot feels better tomorrow as it isn't the greatest right now.
