Yet another one…

This week my naggin foot injury, which I thought had
disappeared, has kicked off again.  I
have been struggling with my feet over the last 18 months or so.  First of all I had Plantar Fasciitis, then having
just said goodbye to that I was told I possibly had Morton’s neuroma in my
right foot. Finally in February and with yet another and different pain I was
told I had tendonitis of my foot.  Now
this has been at various times throughout the last 18 months and diagnosed by
differing people.  From a friend who is a
nurse, to a physio to a podiatrist. 
So over the past few days I made the decision that I was
doing way too much reading and getting conflicting opinions. I had listened to
various people and it hadn’t helped, it was now time to get the BIG guns out,
go to an expert and listen to one voice. 
So I went to a recommended podiatrist yesterday and so the journey of
healing begins again.  Hopefully this
time we will get to the bottom of the problem.
This is now a dangerous stage that I have now entered. One
of the risks here is to say that this excuses me from further training in an
attempt to avoid injury.  Another danger
is to wallow in self pity and comfort eat. 
Both of these strands of faulty thinking I have fallen for in the past
and been the victim of.  I know that the
cross trainer seems not to annoy the foot and so I need to start utilizing that
fact to my benefit and obviously upper body stuff is also a way to exercise
without straining the foot.
Let’s keep focused…
