Great...was training on my own today on the heavy bag; at the end did another set of knee kick drills...and got a super nasty stress fracture of my right foot. It's absolutely ****ed.

I'll be in plaster for the best part of two months; but with luck I won't need an op to plate it.

That's totally stuffed my training though. And I shall have to completely re-think how I train in the future; although in fairness it could have just as easily happened while running, lifting something heavy, or jumping off a kerb.

That's really frustrating! I'm sorry to hear it. How long have you been training?

I've trained in a boot before so you may be hitting things sooner than you expect. So sorry you got hurt though.

I've been training for a couple of years now; some of the time on my own against the heavy bag, some of the time very intensively with my trainer.

At least I can still do core and upper body work, but even just standing right now is intensely painful (as is just sitting, if it comes to that).

It's a very bad fracture so I really will have to be careful and follow the surgeons' instructions as it will take a long time to heal. I may never be able to flex my foot properly again, so doing pushups etc in the future will be tricky.

Well, the foot is still somewhat broken (the top part is still not healed) but it's all stable enough now that my orthopod has said I can return to normal life - go back to work, drive, start GENTLE exercising. Well, it only took three and a half months. Pffft.

It's quite uncomfortable still; and I must admit I'm terrified of flexing my foot and it all falling apart again. I've started adding some gentle jogs for a short distance when I go for my daily walk; it's rather flat-footed (I'm very flat footed anyway), and in sturdy supportive boots. Not exactly great technique, but it's a start.

Next week I shall try a few rounds on the heavy bag; I've been doing just a little each week to remind my muscles what to do, but without going onto my toes. However my situps and knee-based push ups (I can't put any pressure on my right foot) have come along a treat!

Good luck with the recovery! But good to hear that you can start moving again.
For the push ups, maybe you can try them on your left foot and put the right one over the left one and let it just hang/rest.
