notes: This was the log work I didn’t feel up to on Wednesday. I must be psychic. 180 was smooth enough, but when I went for 200 I couldn’t keep my footing, twice. I got mad and went for a third, but I totally stumbled back, and tried to control the log on the way down, but because of the stumbling my left foot was out of place, and I dropped the 200 lb log square on my foot. Ouch!

Honestly, I should have just dumped the log like an ejector seat. But you always feel bad about banging up someone else’s equipment, so my instinct was to control the descent. Anyways, I walked around for a bit, took off my shoe, my foot looked ok, it was throbbing after a few minutes. Nothing seemed broken. I decided to put on some thick winter socks, and do the rest of the workout in socks.

notes: while this was going on, someone agreed to give me a ride and they were leaving so I ended the workout then and left. By this point my foot was too swollen for a shoe anyways, so I was happy to get a ride back home.

Currently resting the foot up and observing the bruising.
