With a little more than a week to the RKC, I've developed an inflamed big toe joint. I woke up Saturday with an ache in my bunion and by night, it was swollen and painful. On Sunday I discovered that I could only wear one pair of shoes to church. I iced my foot three times Sunday. By Monday, the swelling was reduced, but not gone. I attempted my training but had to abort and do the following:
Snatch w/ 16 kg - 5x8 l,r
Then I did the following:
Bear Crawl - 20 yards
Crab Walk - 20 yards
50 swings - Tracy style - L, 2 hand, R, 2 hand "Roundabouts"
I did that four times through.
Today (Tuesday) the swelling was down more. I could wear my shoes, so I decided to try to do what Brad prescribed. Only, I forgot my training print out!!! So I did what I could remember to do:
10 ATG Squats
Mountain Climbers x20 each leg (40 total)
8 Inverted Rows
I completed 5 rounds w/ 30 seconds rest between rounds.
Then I did
4 rounds of Alternating presses - 4 L, R
I see I was supposed to do swings. If I had a KB at home, I would definitely do those. The foot is still tender, but it is MUCH better. I'm thinking that tomorrow it will be back to normal. What causes these weird physical events. I don't remember bumping my toe or anything. I didn't wear new shoes or strange shoes. I've been wearing the same flats and Keens to work and the same Diesels for training. Nothing out of the ordinary. I don't even remember the last time my bunion bothered me let alone swelled up.
Oh well! Chalk it up to the strange happenings in my life. It is what it is!
