    Smashed my left foot which made doing planks very difficult. If its one thing that Ive learned over the years, when getting injured, is just stop hang out heal, then start again. Pushing through it is a bad idea. Its amazing how under appreciated the pinky toe is and how much you depend on it until you mess it up good. Two weeks of healing and Ill begin again slowly this week..
