My extremely high hopes were dashed Monday morning.
Fortunately I have a great doctor that saves emergency spots and was able to work me in and get me a scrip for an xray. On day two I got a diagnosis of nondisplaced fracture and a referral to a podiatrist.
On day 3 I got my boot.
I get to wear the boot everyday along with using crutches for at least 3 weeks. Once the pain subsides I can go crutchless, and another xray to check progress.
On the 4th day I decided to check out the logistics of doing a crossfit WOD.
I located dumbells in the closet, dusted off the cobwebs and tried bicep curls. And then I remembered they could be substituted for one armed KB swings. Now the floor work. I decided on situps and modified push ups.
Thursday WOD - 3 rounds
20 one armed KB swings with a dumbell (10 each arm)
20 sit ups
20 push ups
I was able to squat down and pick up the dumbell and stand. As long as I stayed on my heels which is where I supposed to be I didn't feel any pressure on my foot. Getting up and down on the floor has always been ackward for me because of the knees, all I needed to do was pay attention to the injured foot.
I did well but forgot to time the WOD because I wanted to concentrate on the logistics on moving.
Along came day 5 (Friday) and I wanted to WOD again. Because of limited space and the success I had the day before I kept the same WOD and this time remembered to time it.
9:32 - not too shabby with a gimpy boot.
Can't wait until Monday - My plan is to check out the WOD ahead of time and check with the trainer. If its not something that can be modified well; I'll go to open gym.
Gotta keep babying the foot and keep going.
