My foot!

August 18, 2010

Whenever my clients get injured, whether it’s because they slept wrong, twisted their ankle wearing hooker heels or hurt their knee playing a rough game of tennis, I typically give the same advice:

REST, ICE, COMPRESS & ELEVATE

Yet, when I get injured, I have the hardest time following my advice. Last Sunday, I ran a half-marathon and have been limping around ever since. It feels like a stress fracture on the side of my foot. Instead of following the R.I.C.E. method above, I limp along, I overtrain and ignore my injury hoping it’ll go away.

I’m off to ice my foot.
