Broken again. Not sure how bad yet.

29 Jan 20

I've had ongoing issues with pain in the lateral aspect of my left foot, roughly opposite of where my arch begins.  It's become so painful that by the time night rolls around I'm limping around the house making ouchie faces. 

I had hoped the two weeks I took off at Christmas would have given my body a chance to recover.  Especially since I've been babying myself with leg work due to the previous groin pulls.

Anyhow, saw my doctor yesterday and I have to go for an x-ray of the foot.  Hopefully they'll find something so that I can get it fixed.  I hate these mystery injuries where all you can do is wait and see if it goes away.  If it's broken and I need a boot, great.  That sets a timeline and recovery plan.

In the interim I'll do whatever upper body work I can get away with.  It's not my first rodeo, and I know how to work without legs. 

Today was wide and close grip floor presses, seal rows, pull downs, and 1 km of rowing.  (one foot strapped in, the other free) - making it pretty glute driven and quite exhausting.
