Injured!!!

Yes, it had happen. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t expecting something to happen. That should be obvious is my previous posts.

My guess is this is related to the plantar I’ve been playing with. My outisde toes and push off has been weak and I haven’t been doing the exercises I should. Today it was a little slippery and I stuck my foot in a part of concrete that was sticking out, pushed off a little off center and then felt a twinge in my right foot. After two miles under 7 min pace I was at the rock and decided to take it easier the rest of the way. So I decided to head back the same way, the way back was then jog/walk and once I hit 4th and Congress it was all walking.

Now it’s a matter of resting, figuring put the root cause and working it out. And just doing some light stuff at the gym to maintain my fitness.
