Papier Mache

Today I had a biomechanical assessment done by John Hamilton. I've been experiencing some mild plantar fascitis pain in my left foot and wanted to mitigate it before it gets any worse.

After drawing on my feet and telling me that my left leg is half an inch shorter than my right John cast my feet. This was pretty cool. I lay on my stomach on a table while my feet hung over the back and he wrapped them up in plaster. While waiting for them to dry i fell asleep, but once he started to take them off i woke up. Next week i'll go back and get the orthotics.

This week marks the end of a long hard training block that was big on swim and bike volume for me. A couple more days and then some regeneration!
