    Hi Catilin! So recently I injured my foot while doing sprints. I was running and I could feel the pain creeping up on me but I continued to run on it until I got to the point where I could not run and I was limping. I haven’t been to the doctor because I’m afraid I’ll receive bad news but I’ve been icing it nonstop and taking ibuprofen. I’ve also taken a week off running but I really want to run again come this Monday. It’s killed me not being able to run and I literally had a meltdown. My foot has gotten better to the point where I’m not limping but is there anything else I can do? Thanks so much!

    Just a heads up! For some reason the background of your blog posts are blue. It must just be an error, but it makes it really hard to read gray text with the blue

    ..or maybe I’m the only one having this problem haha!

    • Amber K May 27, 2012, 2:46 pm

      I had that same problem yesterday, but it seems to be fixed for me now!

      • CaitlinHTP May 28, 2012, 10:50 am

        This is just as frustrating for me as it is for you guys, trust me. I am working really hard to get it fixed! Thanks for letting me know.
