I decided to be brave and go to my Monday night classes tonight. I put a tegaderm strip over the blister, and then added a bandage to that. I couldn't find a blister bandage big enough to cover it! Walking in a shoe still hurt, but I decided to tough it out, as long as I was careful.
The first class was pretty good. There were a few things I couldn't do, especially backward lunges. I'm thinking anything that really extended the heel was suspect, but I was suprised that I was able to get through the class with only minor modifications. And, it was a good class, too.
The problem started when I took off my sock and shoe for yoga. The bandages wanted to come off right away. Fortunately, I was able to find some scotch tape and tape it back in place. It held OK for most of the class. But, I found out pretty quickly that I just couldn't do down dog. It put too much pressure on the heel, and I couldn't make it work. But, that's OK. I made the class work, and I'm proud of myself for sticking to it.
When I came home, I put a new tegaderm strip on it, and it feels so much better. I'm definitely going to have to get another box so I don't worry about running out! But, to be completely honest, I'm really glad tomorrow is a rest day.
