Whenever my clients get injured, whether it’s because they slept wrong, twisted their ankle wearing hooker heels or hurt their knee playing a rough game of tennis, I typically give the same advice:
REST, ICE, COMPRESS & ELEVATE
Yet, when I get injured, I have the hardest time following my advice. Last Sunday, I ran a half-marathon and have been limping around ever since. It feels like a stress fracture on the side of my foot. Instead of following the R.I.C.E. method above, I limp along, I overtrain and ignore my injury hoping it’ll go away.
I’m off to ice my foot.
