Weds. June 30th Sprots Conditioning Class -- What I needed and didn't need
I wanted to go to this class because I needed some ab work. Also, I thought that this would be good for my Achilles because this class doesn't require that much running or a lot of stairs. However, I forgot that sometimes we do tons of calf raises, which really work your Achilles. Of course, that is exactly what we did . . . tons of calf raises!!! The abs portion was fine, as were the other exercise, but the calf raises really put too much strain on my heel. I iced both of them right after the class and did a lot of stretching, but as the day went on my heels felt like they were on fire. I even had to get one the ice pack out of an old first aid kit in the afternoon and put it on my heels. On my hay home from work, I stopped and got an ankle brace, which is suppose to help with the healing process. I put it on when I got home and ice my heels some more, and they improved a lot as the night went on, but I know that I need to change what I am doing and give time for recuperation.
