Injuries Galore

Well, my wrists feel a little better after basically a month off. Granted, I did cheat on my "no gripping exercises" policy just a little. Not much though. Just the occasional set of pull ups and dragon flags. I started doing the agility ladder to offset my lack of time on the jump rope. The ladder was a heck of a lot more of a workout than I was expecting. I also started doing medicine ball throwing exercises. Three rounds of varying exercises using of 30s effort and 30s rest pushes me to the edge of feeling queasy.

On the down side, I've been having on and off pain in my left foot. It's sharp pain for a few days, which then disappears. But it's recurred twice, which is not a good sign. After a bit of reading, I think I have a sprained ligament in my foot. My foot only hurts when weighted and in certain types of motion. There's also the fact that I've been doing more unfamiliar plyometric type exercises, which is probably stressing my feet in new ways. All I have to say is "bleh." Walking around gimpy puts a real damper on my conditioning. But oddly enough, it doesn't prevent me from teaching my I-Liq Chuan classes. I can still demonstrate applications while gimpy.
