Injuries and Working Out


I injured a bursa near my achilles about 3 weeks ago, and I aggravated it by working out before I realized what the issue was. Now I haven't worked out in more than 2 weeks and I'm feeling a little sorry for myself.

I'm a massage therapist and I'm on my feet with a semi-physical job 5-6 hours a day. I've allowed my anxiety and self talk to get the best of me and I worry that my achilles is going to rupture (its not). I need to remind myself it will be all right and to be patient. I just feel myself sliding backwards. I feel weak at work, I'm sore from having to adjust my body mechanics and from not working out. I just needed to put this out there, have a tiny pity party for myself, and move on.

I'm going to just start focusing on my upper body & core for the next several weeks and keep the eclairs and cookies out the house.

Thanks for letting me put this out to the universe and talking through it.
