So today is my bachelorette and this is what I am dealing with! I am pretty upset. This week I accomplished an awesome leg workout of squats and lunges on Tuesday. My achilles felt a little sore on Tuesday night, nothing major. It continued to hurt during the day on Wednesday and by Thursday after my workout it was THROBBING. Bring out the ice packs and the calf raises along with the resistance band stretching. Yesterday it felt worse and has been extremely stiff. The pain is not overbearing when I walk, just more annoying than anything else. I am pretty much a baby when it comes to this right now, considering my wedding is THREE WEEKS AWAY and I want to be able to walk!
So I hightailed it back to the pool this morning, and this is where I will be spending all of my workouts until my wedding date, February 18th. I will not risk walking down the aisle with a limp. It did feel really good to get back into the pool this morning, and my 40 minute workout kicked my butt...at the same time I have mixed feelings. I was doing so great on Jamie Eason's plan, I am a little sad about not being able to continue the leg portion of it :( I will continue with the upper body workouts, I will just need to lighten them up due to the fact that I will be swimming too.
I hate to say this, but in reality I really don't think I will ever be able to go back to running or hard leg compound movements ever again. It seems that the moment I get back into the game, it acts up all over again. It is really discouraging not to mention annoying have to ice my foot all night and hobble around trying to get stuff done. I am really sick of this injury, I think I am going to have to permanently turn into a fish ha ha.
My friends had an exciting night planned out tonight starting with pole dancing lessons..well luckily I have been complaining to my friends about my foot issues and they had to cancel the lessons. Instead we are getting a limo to take us around downtown all night. I am super excited..bummed I won't be doing any dancing. I am just going to be really cautious with my foot. I had to change my plans to wear my cute black heels to flats with insoles :( Of all weekends this dang thing had to flare up again! I can look at it as a good thing, if this flare up did not happen, I could have really pushed myself before my wedding and had a worse injury. Thinking of the positive here. Wish me luck tonight!!
