This is an attempt to substitute an absence of career oriented achievement and meaning with an alternate source. Plagued with debilitating health conditions, I will attempt to overcome my ailments through conditioning and weight training. Follow my 60 days of preparation for the Tough Mudder Race in October 2010.
Yesterday's big run killed my feet. The rest of my body feels okay, so my training is paying off. My feet are pretty sore, to the point where walking is difficult. Instead of wearing my Vibram Five Finger shoes all day to help work out the lactic acid, like I usually do, I opted for some very stiff soled indoor soccer shoes. The idea was to immobilize my feet, so I could actually move around throughout the day.
I ate some bananas and cooked up some sweet potatoes, so the potassium would help with the soreness. I also took ibuprofen all day, to reduce any inflammation in my ankles and feet.
Aside from that, there was no training today, just pure recovery.
