15 Feb

Yep, having another one of those days today.  My foot hurts.  WHY???  WHYYYYYYY?  Is it because I ran for the train today?  Yes, I ran from my apartment to the train (~5 blocks) because I was about to miss the 5:30 one I need to catch in order to make it to the 6 AM Flywheel class.  I was winded after said run.  Really encouraging.  (Sarcasm.)  Anyway, that was the most running I’ve done in forevah and my foot is rebelling now, I guess?  WILL I EVER BE ABLE TO RUN MARATHONS AGAINNNNNNN???


So,  yep, foul mood today.  Also, I am in the “farting is hilarious” camp UNLESS it is when you’re in an enclosed hot room full of others who are toiling away on bikes and breathing heavily.


Seriously, so rude and disgusting!  I obviously do not know who the culprit was, but consider this my own personal PSA:  farting in a spinning class is really nasty.  Just do your best to hold it in, man.  (Or woman.)

Also, I am going very broke from Flywheel, but at least it is keeping me sane.  (More sarcasm.)

In en effort to make this not a totally angry hater post, here is one picture of 4 things I love.

Bam! Sunshine. Racing. Beer. T.

Mmmkay, sorry for the salty post.  I’ll do better next time.  Now, tell me somethin’ good!

      I am getting there… especially since the MTA decided to keep me waiting on the train for 30 minutes this morning, thus causing me to miss a class I had already paid for. Ahh, another glorious day. So glad tomorrow is Friday.

    Spinfarts are so awful. In my very first spin class, I was in the back and someone in the front of the room started farting intensely, and I only figured out who it was because one by one, everyone else on that side of the room got up and moved to another bike … thus making an even more direct fart path between him and me.

      Oh G-d. That is so wrong. And yet… so funny.

        Also, thank you for saying “spinfart.” When are they adding that to the OED?

    Aw! Love the pic! Sadly, I did not get the 4th item – sunshine. Post more puzzles! Hehe.

    Ps. You rock. Hope the foot has stopper rebelling for now.

    • Katie February 16, 2012 at 8:35 am #

      Haha puzzles. I will try and come up with some good ones.

    Ah chica I feel your pain! Just keep up with all the exercises and rehab etc, and stay positive! Think of your happy thoughts like beer and sunshine. And you definitely deserve expensive spin classes when injured 🙂

      Thanks, Josie!!!

    Hi Katie

    I stumbled upon your blog today (whilst taking an unintended break from thesis writing) and, upon seeing that you have been struck by the PF monster (been there, done that), I thought I would put in my two cents. So here it is…

    1. It will go away. Guaranteed.
    2. Don’t run on it. I tried to (on and off) and it just prolonged the whole ordeal. Try avoid walking long distances on it too.
    3. Don’t be too aggressive with it. I massaged the hell out of my arch with a ball, cold water bottle etc. but it made it worse. I think the best thing to do is to leave the arch and heel alone and focus on massaging and trigger-pointing the calf muscles (even try some dry needling if you can find a PT who does it).
    4. Once the pain start to subside work on strengthening the feet, ankles and hips. Get your running gait assessed and work on mid foot to forefoot striking (even some barefoot running).

    Good luck…it’s a real pain but it really does resolve itself. Be patient and you will be out running again soon!

      Hi Dorothy! I am pretty much doing everything you just described, so that makes me feel good! How long were you plagued by this “monster,” as you so aptly called it?
      Good luck on your thesis!

        Well it hung around for a good couple of months but, having said that, that was entirely my own fault. I kept attempting to run through it and irritating my heel with overzealous massage! When I did eventually come to my senses and I stopped running (I still cycled though) for 6 or so weeks, it went away completely. You’re on the right track already – now it’s just a waiting game. At least the spinning will give you that “sweat fix” in the meantime!

    Ditto except insert Soul Cycle — it’s kept me so sane and happy. All I do is figure out how I can throw more money at soul cycle…for my endorphin needs….

    Hoping you get better soon!
