No pain, even after walking around the woods yesterday. Maybe having an inadvertent ice bath helped? Either way, this is good news.

Walked the brown course very slowly with Lupe. Absolutely beautiful day to be out and the woods were beautiful, I just think next time we should do orange instead because then we could have split the navigation more evenly.

Climbing class plus open gym. Probably climbed too much for my foot but it was fun. And I finally got the boulder problem I've been working on for the past few weeks!!
So the foot is hurting while walking, which is not good. Fortunately, I've had to deal with shit like this before, but with lots of patience. With that in mind, the focus for the next 3 weeks is going to shift to resting it and keeping impact as light as possible. Plan:
-Stay away from erg and assault bike. While they're low-impact, I tend to push myself very hard in these workouts, putting a lot of force thru my foot repeatedly, which is probably not helping it recover.
-Start pool running and swimming regardless of the mental discomfort the pool brings. Just gotta suck it up and send it.
-Alter-G sessions will be taken slow, even though going fast feels good.
-Thanksgiving break will be a period of forced rest, like Spring Break was plebe year.
-Deadlift = okay. Deadlifting >= 1.5x BW =/= okay. Regardless, keep any lifting that puts stress on the lower body to a minimum.
This is going to suck more than a little but there is hope.
running (Alter-G) 15:00  1.7 mi (8:49 / mi)
slept:4.0 shoes: Saucony Freedom 2.0
No more fast running on the Alter-G by order of the PT
biking intervals 1:06:00 
15 minute warmup
3 rounds of:
10 x 40s hard/20s recover
5 minute EZ spin
10 minute cooldown
Good workout, the intervals really flew by.
Foot was being especially achy even while walking around, likely bc of the workout the day before (burpees are very bad for it, i guess). Went to see the PT, asked if I could get out of the Alter-G anytime soon, and got a solid no. Which sucks. A lot.
I'm starting to think my bone actually broke, and wasn't just a stress reaction. Would explain a lot.
