Yeah, this doesn't look normal...

I stepped in a fire ant nest the other day.  Five bites on the one toe, one on another, a bite on the top of the foot and one in between two toes.

Needless to say, my foot swelled up and was pretty painful for a few days.  Because of the swelling, I couldn't put a shoe on and could barely bend my toes.  Not to mention the itching...

But I still managed to get a workout in.  I had to get creative about it.  But I got it done.

What do you do when you're sidelined by an injury?  Do you just throw in the towel and tell yourself you'll work out when it's healed?  Or do you find other ways to get your heart rate up?


  1. Tis the season. I still have flashbacks...

    They got Nancy H. yesterday. Glad we don't have the little buggers up North.

    1. They are nasty... But I'd still take them over rattlesnakes =)
