injuries suck, regardless of their name. new training word - 'patience'
Thanks, you're right. I dropped out of Raid The Hammer this morning. I might walk Sunday's Ontario Champs Long, which is the only other race I'm registered for right now.
In 2013, I was allowed to start walk/running after a month of daily physio and weekly chiro treatments. But I cheated and did the RTH Half Raid during that period with Funderstorm and Dlevine on Team Achilles Healing. We said we would walk but of course we didn't.
Great time to focus on biking!
Exactly. And strength, yoga and kayak erg - maybe some outdoor paddling if this weather continues. I even thought about (gasp!) swimming. When my heel feels better, I'll hit the ground running, haha.
Oh no! Better heal up so you can be a more effective goader!
That's the plan! If we sign up, I'll go as support crew even if I'm still injured - but I plan to be fine by then. My 2018 goals are helping my motivation to do physio exercises and make chiro appointments, and they've made it a little easier to give up running temporarily.
Welcome to the club :(
Swimming isn't so bad. You could also run in the water with a belt.
Roller skiing would' t likely hurt your heel either if you want to try that - you can join me. I have some extra roller skid.
I have roller skis that I haven't used for awhile so I've been thinking about that. No chance I could keep up with you though!
Water running is good especially with other runners but the first question somebody asks a new water runner (because they know you are injured) is likely the first question an inmate is asked when they start prison.
"What you in here for?"

Yeah, that didn't go so well. My injured foot is feeling surprisingly good already. Last time it took much longer to recover to this point so I must have let it get a lot worse.
Well, it´s always easier to be smart after the fact...
It was a tough lesson four years ago!
