Lousy Injury Delays Training

On Friday night, I went for my 1.5 mile around my neighborhood instead of heading down to the track. The next day, I noticed the right side of my right foot felt sore. I must have come down on it wrong during that run. However, I was not going to run again until Sunday so I figured it would be all right.

Unfortunately, that was not the case. I was barely able to complete half the run before I had to give it up. Now here we are on Monday, and it hurts just to walk on it. Therefore, I think I will be cancelling ALL training this week. I will still go to wing chun class on Wednesday night. Other than that, I need a week to rest.

Lesson of the day: immediately put any and all training on hold for even the SLIGHTEST injury. Otherwise it could become not so slight very quickly.

About Steve Grogan

I am 40 years old, divorced, and a father of four kids. I am a practitioner of a self-defense system called wing chun kung fu. My other hobbies include writing, playing guitar, reading, watching movies, and listening to music. Recently I have gotten back into fitness, and this time I am DETERMINED to get the washboard abs...whether my metabolism will cooperate with me or not! The purpose of this blog is to write not only about my hobbies, but also about whatever crosses my mind, whether it is something I don't understand or something that aggravates me. So join me as I indulge my tendency to think too much about topics that don't usually cross anyone else's mind!
