Well, I was a little wary of this one beforehand, but I ended up LOVING it. Sled sprints are my new favorite movement/WOD/whatever!
Our WOD was the following:
10 x 25/75m Sled Sprints
So.. quantity of 10 reps total. 25m sprint with the sled, 75m sprint without the sled. So you start with the sled, and after 25m, you drop it and keep sprinting. Then you get to take your time and walk back. HIIT at its finest! It’s what I need to do more of. I was saying to myself, why am I not doing this 2-3-4 times a week? This is what I need to be doing more of! This is so AWESOME!
Then the next day happened. My feet, my right foot in particular, so inflamed and tender that I couldn’t even walk on it. It had to have been from the sprinting. The over extension of my arches. After some anatomy googling, I have concluded that the part of my plantar fascia that attaches to my heel (towards the rear part of my foot, is very inflamed as a result. It is also an area that’s commonly torn and/or strained. Greeeat!
|This is the exact spot where mine hurts, except on my right foot. Stupid Plantars Fasciitis|
Here we are, 5 days later, and I can still barely walk when I get out of bed or up from sitting for extended periods of time. With movement and shoes on, it feels better. The best it’s felt is when I wrapped it last night with the voodoo band for a minute or so. I need to do that again.
But of course, I don’t stay off of it. I keep working out, keep running, keep doing stupid things like over/unders, box jump overs and DUs (last week and yesterday)
It’ll go away again. It always does. I want to do more sprints, and now I’m annoyed that this was SO aggravated by something I was pretty good at, too. 🙁
