Well, not to jump to conclusions, but after "The Elbow" beat the shit out of my calve muscles then had me run on the treadmill to look at my running form and had to then ask me, "So, how does your foot feel?" and I responded with, "Oh, wait, my foot? Oh! My foot!.....oh, it doesn't hurt!!!"
I would say that that is a good sign?
The prognosis? My left calve muscles were VERY tight, even though they felt 100% fine. So tight, that they were pulling on where the muscles/tendons/ligaments are attached, which starts from the very bottom of your foot and works its way around the ankle. In fact, I described how the pain started at the very bottom of my foot and followed its way directly along the path of the muscle/tendon/ligament that eventually becomes one of the calve muscles.
Loosen the calve muscle == loosen the pulling on the attachment point == Pain dissolves!!!
So after a 45 min deep tissue massage of the entire foot and calve muscles, I started walking and it felt funny because there was no pain. I had gotten so used to walking with the pain, that walking without pain felt strange.
In fact, I had a Eureka moment when she asked how the stretching of my calves muscles have been going. Well! My right calve muscle has been fine, but my left one is taking a lot more to stretch and hurts a lot more to stretch. Remember how I was complaining that my calve muscles hurt the worst after Timberman? DING DING! WE HAVE A WINNER!!!! My right calve felt worse, but it loosened up. My left calve didn't loosen up as much, and the pain in the foot is the result.
So your pinky toe IS connected to your ear bone? ;)
Now I doubt this one session is going to cure it. But at least a diagnosis is some relief!
No way it can be a stress fracture, right? I mean if it was a stress fracture than I would be feeling it regardless, after all it would be bone that was busted. Right?
So it is great walking around like normal again. Going forward, continue stretching and foam rolling my calve muscles to keep them loose and icing the bottom of my feet is the diet.
Now I gotta get my head back in the game!
